Description of problem:
While working on the microcode_ctl package in Specifix Linux, I was puling updates to microcode_ctl.init (version 1.15) from the new Fedora Core CVS. I noticed, however, that there is a slight problem with the check to see that the processor is >=686. The -F flag is specified to awk, but the delimiter is not. The following patch fixes that (& makes the grep/awk usage mimic the previous usage in earlier parts of the init script).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. # /etc/init.d/microcode_ctl start
Actual Results: Error message about gawk usage spits out on console
Expected Results: No error message

fix for awk usage
thanks, committed to CVS, I'll push another build through..
