I do that normally for functions that return either a truth value
or a pointer to an object that may be NULL, whereas strcasecmp
returns a numerical value that I'm checking for a specific result.
This is also consistant with how it is used elsewhere in the file.

I took that from device_is_compatible(), which also does
strncasecmp, so I assumed that was done for a reason.
