My feeling was that you would want to get that warning message if you
failed to get the prioritizer in prio_get() because the name was empty.
With this change it will silently fail unless you have the verbosity set
to 3, in which case you'll get a message like

sdb: prio =  (config file default)

Which doesn't really look that much like an error.

On the other hand, if you never got a prioritizer at all, you don't want
a warning message when you try to free it in prio_put() since that's
only happening because there is nothing to free.

What you you think?
