Yes, you're right. The goto is only executed if all the preceeding matches,
and for ACTION=add that is never the case.

I've found a shorter way of doing this.

Subject: [PATCH] keytable: ensure the udev rule fires on creation of the input
 device

The rc device is created before the input device, so if ir-keytable runs
too early the input device does not exist yet.

Ensure that rule fires on creation of a rc device's input device.

Note that this also prevents udev from starting ir-keytable on an
transmit only device, which has no input device.

Note that $id in RUN will not work, since that is expanded after all the
rules are matched, at which point the the parent might have been changed
by another match in another rule. The argument to $env{key} is expanded
immediately.

That's a really clever trick of dealing with the RUN/$id issue,
I like it a lot!
