Is there a reason to use device ID over device label?

Recommended Posts

So I'm trying to create a DSDT patch and along the way I'm learning things.


I've notice some examples I've seen uses device ID while other uses the device label.


Any pros/cons over the other? I can see myself leaning towards device label since it's easier to read/relate?


thanks a lot! :)


example: both lines refer to the PIC device except the 2nd one uses the device ID

into device label PIC code_regex IRQNoFlags\s\(\)\n\s+\{(\d+)\} remove_matched;
into device name_hid PNP0000 code_regex IRQNoFlags\s\(\)\n\s+\{(\d+)\} remove_matched;
