Fixed In Version: ovirt-node-3.0.1-4.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
The hypervisor installer uses a size of -1 to fill all remaining free space for the data partition. This value is automatically set, but if a user changed it, they were unable to change it back to -1 and proceed with the installation. This is now possible.

Description of problem:
It can not set data size to -1 manually during TUI installation. But the default data size is -1. So should accept the format of data size is -1.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install rhev-hypervisor6-6.5-20130930.0.auto665.el6.iso using TUI mode.
2. Change the data size to -1 in storage volumes page.

Actual results:
1. After step2, it will prompt that the file must contain a number in the bounds [0,None]. And it will not accept the setting of data size as -1. 

Expected results:
