[jboss-as7-dev] NPE in POST_MODULE processors

a quick reminder that you cannot assume a valid Module attachment in 
Phase.POST_MODULE or after.

An OSGi deployment that cannot resolve won't have a Module attached to 
the DU. There is talk about aligning the deployment phase names with 
Bundle life cycle terminology. IMHO Phase.POST_MODULE and Phase.INSTALL 
are not so lucky names because they imply meaning that may not be true. 
For suggested improvement see https://issues.jboss.org/browse/AS7-3585
