Description of problem:
During Installation the host tries to enumerate the keyboard/mouse dongle for
the Raritan KVM.At this time timeouts have been observed. So if the system has
USB Floppy/CDROM and if the Raritan USB KVM Dongle is being enumerated first
then due to these timeouts the usb-storage driver will not be loaded.So the USB
storage devices will be inaccessible.
Adding the Raritan KVM USB dongle to the blacklist fixes this issue

John - review this issue for R5, obtain a KVM for testing as required.
FTR (for the record) .. patch is provided by Dell to fix this issue.
Raising severity as the Raritan KVM USB dongle is commonly used in *all* of
Dell's test labs.
Dell will be more than happy to test and post results on the test package, so
there shouldn't be a need to send H/W to RH. As a matter of fact, as per comment
#1, issues has already been regressed successfully as fixed with the proposed
patch. Can someone from RH please review and comment on the patch ??
Code with patch has been built by Brew and can be tested
