    You've commented out the floppy controller counter in the main program:
    #$fdc{$_}++;
    but it's still present in the commented examples.
    The floppy drive counter doesn't work for more than one floppy disk.
    The dmesg output is of the form:

    Floppy drive(s): fd0 is 1.44M, fd1 is 1.2M

    but you only ever pick up the last word on the line. Here's a patch:

    It also doesn't pick up devices whose drivers are loaded as modules
    (unless there's both no /var/log/dmesg and the real dmesg buffer
    hasn't lost the module load line off the top). This will prevent
    picking up ethernet cards which are typically both popular and
    loaded as modules. Nevertheless, it's a good and useful start.
