Ah, great. Thanks Thomas.

Steffen, with upcoming future changes of the kernel block subsystem moving to
"struct device", hwinfo will need to handle symlinks to directories in
/sys/block/ instead of expecting real directories, like most of the current
sysfs already looks like.

Is the involved code that needs to be changed all contained in
hwinfo/src/block.c? Thanks!
