Should I rather put this vendor name/pn check into the
sfp_module_supported() function?

static bool sfp_module_supported(const struct sfp_eeprom_id *id)
{
	if (id->base.phys_id == SFF8024_ID_SFP &&
	    id->base.phys_ext_id == SFP_PHYS_EXT_ID_SFP)
		return true;

	if (id->base.phys_id == SFF8024_ID_SFF_8472 &&
	    id->base.phys_ext_id == SFP_PHYS_EXT_ID_SFP &&
	    !memcmp(id->base.vendor_name, "UBNT            ", 16) &&
	    !memcmp(id->base.vendor_pn, "UF-INSTANT      ", 16))
		return true;

	return false;
}
