    Hi,

    In EFI shell, when two usb keys are mapped, I observed the following behaviour.
    1. With a key1 on port2, on donig 'map -r', assigns the name fs0:
    2. cd to fs0:, on duing a 'ls' contents of key1 are displayed.
    3. When a second key2 is inserted on port1, and do 'map -r'.
    4. Now, on doing a 'ls', key2 contents are shown as fs0: and key1 contents are shown as fs1:.
    Thus, the driver naming changes dynamically.
    (NOTE: port1 is scanned first and then the port2.)

    Is this the expected behaviour on the EFI shell (or) is it a bug?
    Please share your views.

    Thanks.
