Ok. This module_supported() function is called in sfp_sm_mod_probe()
function. Current code is:

/* Check whether we support this module */
if (!sfp->type->module_supported(&id)) {
dev_err(sfp->dev,
"module is not supported - phys id 0x%02x 0x%02x\n",
sfp->id.base.phys_id, sfp->id.base.phys_ext_id);
return -EINVAL;
}

Do you want to change code to something like this?

/* Check whether we support this module */
if (!sfp->type->module_supported(&id) &&
(memcmp(id.base.vendor_name, "UBNT ", 16) ||
memcmp(id.base.vendor_pn, "UF-INSTANT ", 16)))
dev_err(sfp->dev,
"module is not supported - phys id 0x%02x 0x%02x\n",
sfp->id.base.phys_id, sfp->id.base.phys_ext_id);
return -EINVAL;
}

Or do you have a better idea how to skip that module_supported check for
this UBNT SFP?
