Could be, I don't really know how this sysfs stuff is supposed to work.

The module has several aliases:
        alias:          xenblk
        alias:          xen:vbd
        alias:          block-major-202-*
but not just plain vbd. (Similarly xen-netfront has xen:vif etc but not
plain vif). I guess it is the name of the entry
under /sys/bus/xen/drivers which matters?

Weirdly under /sys/module/xen_fbfront/drivers/ there is xen:vbd
-> .../bus/drivers/vbd, I'm not sure where that name comes from, it's
not even the first alias.

(FYI I'm about to leave for a weeks travel, I'll hopefully be on email
but not sure how often).
