Changes persistant -> persistent. does not know
persistant (with an A), but should it be one of those things you can
spell in more than one correct way, let me know.

It is very unwise to use this option if you are not using a
boot process that can handle devices being created in any
order. A program that can create persistant block and network
order. A program that can create persistent block and network
device names (like udev) is a good idea if you wish to use
this option.
