spacewalk-splice-tool does not map all arches correctly
Last modified: 2013-10-01 07:26:24 EDT
Description of problem: Some architectures are not mapped correctly by spacewalk-splice-tool into something that candlepin can understand.
Specifically, "athlon" needs to get converted to i386, and both "ppc64pseries" and "ppc64iseries" need to get converted to "ppc64"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.45
How reproducible: every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. find a machine that reports as athlon, ppc64pseries or ppc64iseries
2. install RHEL 4, register it to sat 5.6
3. run spacewalk-splice-tool, attempt to bind an i386 or ppc64 subscription
autoattach will fail, and manual binding will result in a "yellow" system
system should be "green"
Additional info: The system can't become green because candlepin does not realize that the system arches reported by spacewalk-splice-tool are the same as the arches it knows about.

Verified with Snapshot 7:
EM64T => x86_64
athlon => i386
ppc64pseries => ppc64
ppc64iseries => ppc64
