It's not necessarily so much for the mount case as much as for being
able to have a consistent and understandable way to refer to disks
during the install as much as the afterwards parts.  But we need to be
able to refer to a specific disk during a kickstart, for example, and
usb-storage can really throw off people's expectations there.

One thing that might be worth looking at is having usb-storage loaded
later so that we only have to think about the reload (or the naming) as
a concern for the case where the user has used a driver disk on some
kind of usb storage
