If the alias hasn't been set at the time that we're calling this
function, that would be an error that should be remedied. Currently the
only place it is going to be called is during commandline generation,
after all devices have had their aliases assigned, and during hotplug
(also by definition after all other devices have had their aliases
assigned). So for current usage we are fine. In the future if someone
tries to use this function when they shouldn't, they will get the
internal error and learn their lesson.
