 On machines that have a root-only udevadm, it isn't really possible to use
 that tool to check the device. On others, commands like 'udevadm info -q
 name -rp /block/sdb/sdb1' do the right thing, but I don't really want to
 try udevinfo, then udevadm, then whatever tool the next 2 versions of the
 hotplug tools uses?
 It is probably possible to parse one of the files under /sys/block/* to
 get the name, but I haven't found the file/field yet.
 For now I'm hoping that the current hack is good enough. That may fail for
 people with tricky hotplug setups, but if that happens, I can get the
 config and a tar of their /sys/block/* ?
