Going forward I am concerned with any possibility to regression test
this. I'd be helpful to arrange access for a crash-and-burn VM with a
zFCP HBA attached somewhere. (I know that this is difficult because it
also requires more elaborate storage zoning.)

The other case I'm wondering about is how well the installer will handle
the non-presence of DASDs and the co-existence of both.

In other news I just pushed the package to Debian NEW. There might be
concerns about the proper labeling of the license, in which case we need
to iterate a bit. But the package itself looked ready to upload.

Kind regards and thanks
