Try and disable "Asynchronous SCSI scanning" in the kernel (CONFIG_SCSI_SCAN_ASYNC). This gets you predictable sdX device nodes, but increases boot
time a bit depending on how many scsi/sata/ide drives you have because they're scanned for one after the other.

@roarinelk: That's an excellent suggestion! However, I'd already tried it. (I've had asynchronous SCSI scanning disabled for years.)

Even using known good kernel configurations (same configuration file for the same version of the kernel on a different installation on the same machine) did not solve the problem. I suppose I'll never know what caused it, but that's okay. A fresh, clean installation from scratch worked a treat.
