Package: lintian
Version: 2.5.67~bpo9+1
Severity: wishlist

udevadm can be present on the system but non-functional, due to being inside
a chroot for example. It seems that there are two common patterns used in
maintainer scripts that correctly handle that situation:

if udevadm control --reload; then …

udevadm control --reload || true

Could lintian detect the unprotected udevadm call that, with set -e, will
cause the maintainer script to fail?
