# FIXME: what is this for?
tmpreg = ""
for hwmodule in commands.getoutput('cat /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/modules.pcimap
| cut -d " " -f 1 | grep "[:alpha:]" | sort -u').split("n"):
--- snip ---

Steps to Reproduce:

* the hardware plugin contained a malformed regular expression that meant that the plugin would not always output a full set of keywords. The regular expression in the plugin is now properly constructed and works as expected.
