Description Charles R. Anderson 2008-02-11 16:22:08 EST
Description of problem:

The first entry in the list of the "Select Device Driver to Load" dialog for the
device to use for stage2 is "(null)  (fdomain_cs)" which looks like a problem.

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

How reproducible:
didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot rescue CD
2. when it gets to the "Rescue Method" dialog, select Local CD/DVD
3. in my case, the CD/DVD drive had a hardware device error, so the kernel
stopped recognizing it, so it asked for a driver.
4. "Select driver" and look at the first entry in the list.
Actual results:

(null)  (fdomain_cs)
3Com 3C359 Velocity XL Token Ring Adapter Driver (3c

Expected results:
(null) seems like it is wrong...

This is because the module has MODULE_DESCRIPTION macros in it which is kind of
bogus.  I've fixed our script to be more tolerant, though the module should
probably be fixed too
