At least instead of hardcoded number 500, you should use pass size of alias:

static int do_wmi_entry(const char *filename, void *symval, char *alias, size_t alias_size)

if (snprintf(alias, alias_size, WMI_MODULE_PREFIX "%s", *guid_string) < 0) {

Or pass buffer of constant size and then you do not need to use snprintf:

#define ALIAS_SIZE (sizeof(WMI_MODULE_PREFIX)+WMI_GUID_STRING_LEN)

static int do_wmi_entry(const char *filename, void *symval, char alias[ALIAS_SIZE])

This should not break even when code around changes.
