Description Lubomir Bulej 2004-03-17 16:56:19 EST
Description of problem:
The rc.sysinit and network-functions both parse output of modprobe to
see if the user has defined aliases for usb controllers, network
interfaces etc.

The problem is that they expect that there will be exactly one space
between the words alias and (for example) usb-controller, which fails
in case the user uses tabs or multiple spaces in his configuration files.
