fix whitespace handling in nash

Patch from bug 219344 to correct whitespace handling in nash.
Comment 6 Peter Jones 2008-11-05 13:33:57 EST
Should be fixed in mkinitrd- .
Comment 11 Peter Jones 2008-11-25 16:36:45 EST
This patch isn't going to work -- it totally breaks all quote handling for other cases.  Another approach needs to be used.
Comment 12 Denise Dumas 2008-11-25 16:42:04 EST
Because we don't have a working fix for this, and the previous patch caused major regressions with raid and iscsi resulting in at least 4 additional bugzillas, I'm moving this to 5.4.  Clearly we need to rethink this, and the final days of 5.3 are not the correct time. But we certainly know the right test cases now!

This should be resolved in mkinitrd- .
