With regards to the file format, why did you use tags like:

<data class="linux">
   <data class="module">
      <data class="name">syn53c8xx</data>

over a more structured-feeling format:

<os type="linux">
   <module name="syn53c8xx"/>

or to borrow a phrase from Havoc, abstraction through directories, in
which you'd have a linux directory which would have a device file with

<module name="syn53c8xx"/>

... or something similar?
