I'm only half a cup in this morning myself, but...

In my scenario, I saw in the kernel log:

   % modprobe test_klp_livepatch
   test_klp_livepatch: loading out-of-tree module taints kernel.
   test_klp_livepatch: module verification failed: signature and/or 
required key missing - tainting kernel
   ...

and because check_result() only removes 'tainting' with grep -v, the 
expected log message failed to match with the actual filtered message 
because of the first 'taints' message.

So this change just adds more to the filtered out strings:

   result = dmesg | grep -v <filtered out strings> | grep <interesting 
strings>

BTW, none of the callers of check_result() bother to include either 
taint message since I think they are only ever emitted on the first 
occurance.
