Description of problem:
I got the following traceback when running kickstart installation in VNC mode on an s390x system with unformatted DASD disk:
anaconda 23.19.7-1 exception report
Traceback (most recent call first):
File "/usr/lib64/python3.4/site-packages/gi/overrides/BlockDev.py", line 395, in wrapped

Steps to Reproduce:
1. have an unformatted DASD disk (or format one DASD disk with cpfmtxa in CMS)
2. start kickstart installation in VNC mode, the ks file contains:
clearpart --all --initlabel
unformatted DASD disk is formatted with dasdfmt and the installation finishes successfully
This is again a very easy (one-line) fix isolated strictly to s390x code.
Proposed as a Freeze Exception for 23-final by Fedora user jstodola using the blocker tracking app because:
Violating the following criteria:
Proposing as an exception, since this is only happening on s390x (secondary architecture)
Posted patch for review; even if it is rejected as a FE it needs to still get fixed in master.
+1 FE, critical issue for s390 and it's clearly restricted to the DASD path in the code. Patch is https://lists.fedorahosted.org/pipermail/anaconda-patches/2015-October/024925.html
That's +3, accepted.

It is fixed in anaconda-23.19.9-1.fc23, the installation finished successfully and an unformatted DASD was formatted with dasdfmt during the installation.
