Device driver are called modules in Linux and can be downloaded along with the Linux sources from your distribution repository or from kernel.org. To fix your problem, you can use by-id instead of by path or stop using /dev/ devices manually and let the system pick it automagically.

An other solution would be to make some udev rules to prevent your issue. I am guessing UDEV is actually the cause of your problem rather than the kernel module.
