i believe commitid 84eda68 in the 5.9.2 release introduced a bug in
fai-divert: `command` is a bash builtin and fails when used with

one result of the bug is that the `fai-divert -R` at the end of the
install fails to run and the fai-created `/usr/sbin/policy-rc.d` is
left in place post-install.  noticed this when i unexpectedly started
receiving messages along the lines of:
invoke-rc.d: policy-rc.d denied execution of restart.

i just tested and sent in a pull request[1] to revert the commit, but
if you've installed systems w/5.9.2 you may want to check around a bit.
