Default disk was sd0, now is sd0

I have a system with the OS on disk sd0, and physical disks sd1 thru sd3 setup as a RAID5 array on sd4.
Code:
$ grep sd[0-4] /var/log/messages
Sep 10 18:13:28 shack /bsd: sd0 at scsibus2 targ 0 lun 0: <ATA, Hitachi HDS72168, P21O> SCSI3 0/direct fixed naa.5000cca336c7bd4a
Sep 10 18:13:28 shack /bsd: sd0: 76324MB, 512 bytes/sector, 156312576 sectors
Sep 10 18:13:28 shack /bsd: sd1 at scsibus2 targ 1 lun 0: <ATA, Hitachi HUS72403, MJ8O> SCSI3 0/direct fixed naa.5000cca22cc86e70
Sep 10 18:13:28 shack /bsd: sd1: 2861588MB, 512 bytes/sector, 5860533168 sectors
Sep 10 18:13:28 shack /bsd: sd2 at scsibus2 targ 2 lun 0: <ATA, Hitachi HUS72403, MJ8O> SCSI3 0/direct fixed naa.5000cca22ccea267
Sep 10 18:13:28 shack /bsd: sd2: 2861588MB, 512 bytes/sector, 5860533168 sectors
Sep 10 18:13:28 shack /bsd: sd3 at scsibus2 targ 3 lun 0: <ATA, Hitachi HUS72403, MJ8O> SCSI3 0/direct fixed naa.5000cca22ccdcf8f
Sep 10 18:13:28 shack /bsd: sd3: 2861588MB, 512 bytes/sector, 5860533168 sectors
Sep 10 18:13:28 shack /bsd: sd4 at scsibus4 targ 1 lun 0: <OPENBSD, SR RAID 5, 006> SCSI2 0/direct fixed
Sep 10 18:13:28 shack /bsd: sd4: 5723176MB, 512 bytes/sector, 11721064960 sectors
Now the physical disks are being detected as wd0-wd3, and the array as sd0:
Code:
$ grep [sw]d[0-4]
Oct 15 11:44:23 shack /bsd: wd0 at pciide1 channel 0 drive 0: <Hitachi HDS721680PLA380 IBM>
Oct 15 11:44:23 shack /bsd: wd0: 16-sector PIO, LBA48, 76324MB, 156312576 sectors
Oct 15 11:44:23 shack /bsd: wd1 at pciide1 channel 0 drive 1: <Hitachi HUS724030ALE641>
Oct 15 11:44:23 shack /bsd: wd1: 16-sector PIO, LBA48, 2861588MB, 5860533168 sectors

Oct 15 11:44:23 shack /bsd: wd3 at pciide1 channel 1 drive 1: <Hitachi HUS724030ALE641>
Oct 15 11:44:23 shack /bsd: wd3: 16-sector PIO, LBA48, 2861588MB, 5860533168 sectors
Oct 15 11:44:23 shack /bsd: wd2(pciide1:1:0): using PIO mode 4, Ultra-DMA mode 6
Oct 15 11:44:23 shack /bsd: wd3(pciide1:1:1): using PIO mode 4, Ultra-DMA mode 6
Oct 15 11:44:23 shack /bsd: sd0 at scsibus3 targ 1 lun 0: <OPENBSD, SR RAID 5, 006> SCSI2 0/direct fixed
Oct 15 11:44:23 shack /bsd: sd0: 5723176MB, 512 bytes/sector, 11721064960 sectors
I just noticed this a few days before:
Code:
Oct 11 13:53:03 shack /bsd: softraid0: volume sd0 is roaming, it used to be sd4, updating metadata
Oct 11 13:53:03 shack /bsd: softraid0: roaming device sd1a -> wd2a
Oct 11 13:53:03 shack /bsd: softraid0: roaming device sd2a -> wd1a
Oct 11 13:53:03 shack /bsd: softraid0: roaming device sd3a -> wd3a
My /etc/fstab is using DUIDs instead of devices names, so no problem. But what causes disks to suddenly start to "roam"?

Your physical connection used to be ATA over scsibus(4). Now, it is pciide(4).

I cannot tell you why, but you've stated you are on -current. I expect a historical dmesg(8) vs. a current dmesg(8) could provide some indication of the cause. I don't see anything in recent ChangeLog entries that jumps out at me with a reason.

Bummer, I don't think I have a dmesg that's old enough, unless they're stored somewhere else that I'm not aware of. /var/run/dmesg.boot, /var/log/messages, etc?

I don't know what to make of it. Everything is still functioning fine, and I'm certain there hasn't been any physical tampering. <shrug>

You can create an "old" dmesg. All you need to do is install 6.3-release onto a USB stick, then boot it.

Well shucks, a booting 6.3 on a usb drive showed the same new "wd0" disks. Could AHCI or some other such setting in the BIOS cause the disks to be detected differently?

Sure enough, the disks were set to Compatibility Mode in the BIOS. Switched it back to AHCI, etc etc and the disks "roamed" back to sd(4) devices. Mystery solved!
