Description of problem:
When the wireless key contains a space at the end, ifup trims the key
string and ignores the space at the end.

When iwconfig is used directly, the space is correctly used.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/keys-eth1
KEY='s:s:ABCD '

2. ifup eth1


Actual Results:  iwconfig eth1 
Encryption key:733A-4142-4344-0000-0000-0000-00   Security mode:open

Expected Results:  Encryption key:733A-4142-4344-2000-0000-0000-00

can be achieved with

iwconfig eth1 key 's:s:ABCD '

Additional info:

Workaround possible: use the hex-key instead in the key-eth1 file.
