On s390x machines with dasd disc, the installer fails to format the dasd

Jan 24 12:25:19 s390-dasd[3224]: dasdfmt:

Jan 24 12:25:19 main-menu[341]: WARNING **: Menu item 's390-dasd' failed.

Root cause: 
The s390-dasd package calls dasdfmt with '-f' option which is obselete
 long ago. 

Proposed Fix: 
s390-dasd / dasd-config.c: line 393:
Existing line: snprintf (buf, sizeof (buf), "dasdfmt -l LX%04x -b 4096 -m 1 -f %s -y", channel_device (channel_current->name), dev);
Proposed line: snprintf (buf, sizeof (buf), "dasdfmt -l LX%04x -b 4096 -m 1 %s -y", channel_device (channel_current->name), dev);

This fix is verified. Logs for reference after changes (with additional
