Looking at dmesg might fail if something is spamming it and the message
drops out of the ring buffer. Maybe it would be better to look in syslog?

The modinfo check, which has been removed, avoids that problem,
although it doesn't work for some modules that don't load at all when
missing firmware. I don't know how many modules have that behavior, but
if most of them don't, the modinfo check seems worth keeping as more
robust for the modules it does work for.
