Description Idan Shaby 2016-04-17 14:35:07 UTC
Description of problem:
Upstream commit 7154cc892688f3c58cbbcdc2055f2635c1d0ef5b introduced a "-z" flag into blkdiscard.
RHEV is requesting this flag to be backported to RHEL to be used as a wiping mechanism.
If possible, a backport to RHEL 7.2.z would be great.
