I guess, HAL should be fixed not to add two devices with the same
devpath, The path is unique, and HAL should reflect that. I thought
there is code in there to do that, but it's likely broken by some
change. If you run "udevadm trigger" you see many duplicated devices,
that should just not happen at all in HAL.
