Kickstart file's --card option seems to be ignored

Description of problem:
I specify the --card option on the xconfig line:
xconfig --card "VESA driver (generic)"
The value I used seems to be ignored in favor of the one that it probes and
finds. When I tried installing without a kickstart file, and just answered
the questions (in text mode), the resulting anaconda-ks.cfg file uses
the "VESA driver (generic)" string, but when I used the kickstart file, the
anaconda-ks.cfg file has the probed card's string.
It seems like the kickstart file's value for the --card option is being
ignored. I've found this in both 8.0 and 7.3. I'll attach the two anaconda-
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.do an install using a kickstart file that specifies the --card option
2.make the card specified be different from the one that gets probed
Created attachment 90611 [details]
This is the one that was generated from my kickstart file
Created attachment 90612 [details]
This is the one that was generated without my kickstart file
This should be fixed with the changes I just made.
Mass-closing lots of old bugs which are in MODIFIED (and thus presumed to be
fixed). If any of these are still a problem, please reopen or file a new bug
against the release which they're occurring in so they can be properly tracked.
