Subject: [PATCH] [BZ 161183] zipl: remove invalid dasdview command line option
From: Stefan Haberland <>

Description:  zipl: remove invalid dasdview command line option
Symptom:      zipl does not work when used with a lvm or device mapper
Problem:      The zipl_helper.device-mapper script uses dasdview with
              an option "-f" that has been removed recently.
Solution:     Remove "-f" from the dasdview call.
Reproduction: Run zipl on a lvm target.
