Looks good to me (although I have not tested it). Small note: there is 
a contructor of QStringList taking a QString so if you have a list with 
only one item you don't need to construct an empty list and then add 
something using operator<<.

Side-note: there is a comment talking about using /proc/pci if lspci is 
not found. Not that newer kernels do have a /proc/pci at all ;)

Another solution for that problem ;)
