Description of problem:
Repeated use of grep and awk in the same command pipeline, even though awk has
its own pattern-matching engine, is inefficient and looks unprofessional. This
occurs at lines 259, 298, 439 and 677 in /etc/rc.sysinit.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
initscripts-6.67-1

How reproducible:
N/A

Actual results:
N/A

Expected results:
N/A

Additional info:
Suggest that pipelines are rewritten to use awk's pattern-matching capabilities.

I believe most of these as of roughly Red Hat Linux 9.
