Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,

I am curious if it would be possible (perhaps in a future version) to
increase the max length for the backing_dev name to more than 128 bytes

names are generated by udev in the following manner, therefore
exceeding the length-limitation:


If this is not possible, any thoughts on how to circumvent this

Thanks in advance,
