Description Peter Kjellerstedt 2000-08-04 22:21:12 UTC
When I tried to give nousb as a kernel option I got an error from
rc.sysinit. It turned out that there was an error in the if statement
testing for the nousb option to be present in /proc/cmdline. The following
patch should fix it:

 # Initialize USB controller and HID devices
-if [  grep -q "nousb" /proc/cmdline 2>/dev/null ]; then
+if grep -qi "nousb" /proc/cmdline 2>/dev/null ; then

(BTW, the reason I needed to use nousb was that I got an OOPS when the USB
module was insmod'ed, so I figured I would just turn it of since I do not
use USB anyway. Contact me if you want information about that OOPS and I
will see if I can get it to happen again.)

15464 also mentions a couple other places where this is the case
