It seems fairly common knowledge that a device ID is non-unique, but I
have been wondering how to determine a unique ID for a device. We will
need this ID to be able to send FDI files back and forth over the net.
My first assumption that a combination of the device ID and the
class/name could be an option. Is anyone aware of a way of generating a
unique ID the information that HAL can give us?
