The rules file contains NAME="%k", which is ignored by udev and causes a warning.

Suggestion: Remove the pair. Doesn't seem to impact functionality.

The strange things about this are:
1) The warning doesn't show up in dmesg or everything.log and I couldn't find a udev specific log
2) I can't find the rule file for the vhba module, it's definitely not in /etc/udev/rules.d/

Well, I managed to answer 2) myself now, but it's still curious.
There's not only /etc/udev/rules.d but also /lib/udev/rules.d where the vhba file resides.
It has the strange permissions of:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 72 Oct 18 20:11 60-vhba.rules
while all other files there have:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 46 Nov 5 00:30 60-rfkill.rules

maybe this could be fixed in one swoop.
I don't understand why we need two udev rule directories.

KERNEL=="vhba_ctl", NAME="%k", MODE="0660", OWNER="root", GROUP="cdemu"
has to be changed to
KERNEL=="vhba_ctl", NAME="vhba_ctl", MODE="0660", OWNER="root", GROUP="cdemu"
otherwise cdemud@session-bus wont work ;)

This has been annoying me for some time now (especially because I've had to power off my machine a few times for a couple months). Thanks for the quick fix, will apply it asap.

Anyway custom rules go to /etc, system ones (provided by packages) go to /lib. That's all really. The permission is probably a leftover from upstream, no big deal (doesn't make a difference here if it's executable or not).
