fingerprint = cmd(fingerprint_cmd, shell=True, stderr=DEVNULL)

I have converted this to

fingerprint = cmd(fingerprint_cmd,  stderr=DEVNULL, input=input=host_key)

As the code had the input previous and I did not want to break anythin (having it should be harmless if it was a oversight.
shell=True is automatic if you have any space in the command :-)

(I had a merge conflict with some of my own work)
