Device driver are called modules in Linux and can be downloaded along with the Linux sources from your distribution repository or from 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.
