workaround script to automatically make /dev/sd* device files
Is there any reason why this can't be included in the mkdev package?
Just seems that it would remove one piece of complexity for folks
setting up scsi on Z for the first time.
At this date for U2 we can not add this.
Does the workaround work ?
We can entertain this for U3.
internally verified fixed with MAKEDEV-188.8.131.52-1 ...
IBM pleae retest, believe this is in U3.
looked at U4 system, verified /dev/sd* nodes present ...
