Description of problem:
If the installation is started with fips=1 kernel option, anaconda should install dracut-fips package by default (also in minimal installation).
See comment #20:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start RHEL6 installation with fips=1 kernel option
2. Proceed to stage2, select "minimal" packageset group
3. Finish the installation
4. # rpm -q dracut-fips
dracut-fips package is not installed when fips=1 is provided on kernel command line
According to Stephan Mueller ( https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=691419#c20 ) this package should be installed unconditionally when fips=1 is given.

Tested with anaconda-13.21.109 (nightly tree) and when installing with fips=1 dracut-fips is installed on the system.
