For SCSI, yes, it could have changed (depending on your hardware setup).
SCSI disk scanning happens in parallel, and has ever since kernel 2.6.18
or .19 or somewhere around there.  I believe it still depends on your
low-level SCSI driver though.

In any case, the sdX device names are no longer necessarily stable.
That's why udev now creates the /dev/disk/by-* trees of symlinks, whose
names are supposed to be stable.  (I'd recommend by-id myself, but it
depends on how your disks are set up.)
