The question is, whether such a check should be centralized or not. systemd-udev-trigger.service also has ConditionPathIsReadWrite=/sys We could update all maintainer scripts to wrap that udevadm call into a if [ -w /sys ]; then ... fi but it doesn't appear to me as the worst idea to move this check directly into udevadm and let "udevadm trigger" log a warning/notice and exit 0 if /sys is not writeable.
