   This update for s390-tools provides the following fixes:

   - Added 90-s390-tools.conf to help ensure DASD volumes in DIAG 250 mode
     get activated at boot time. (bsc#966477)
   - Avoid dasdfmt failures due to a busy device. (bsc#937340)
   - Remove references to chzdev tool that was never implemented.
   - Fix zfcp_disk_configure script to use $_zfcp_scsi_id instead of the
     incorrect $_zfcp_target_id. (bsc#957168)
   - Added 59-prng.rules so that /dev/prandom will have permissions of 0444.
     This will allow anyone to access the CPACF hardware pseudo-random number
     generator. (bsc#965165)
   - Fix zfcp_san_disc so that breaking out of it won't leave "well known
