Hmm, but it should at least be logging the failure to determine the module:
if [ -z "$module" ]; then
log "failed to determine module from $devpath"
As it's probably not supposed to fail there, I think it's reasonable that
this gets ignored later on. If there really is no way to handle this case
(which I doubt), then that would have to be revised.
