A imho better solution is to load the geom_label class.
Then either give the device itself a label:
        da3s1d -> label/usbstick42s1d
or set the UFS Label field of the filesystems via 'tunefs -L',
this will give you for example
        da5s1a -> ufs/ustick5data
        da5s1d -> ufs/ustick5keys

or whatever you set the label to, obviously. If geom_label is loaded,
you have unique device names on all servers (if you don't mix things
up when you label them).
