Description of problem:
New installation of RHEL5.2-Server-20080326.0 on a s390x
When creating initrd for installed kernel, mkinitrd stays
cycling in an infinite loop causing the whole installation
The problem is findstoragedriverinsys() routine and this while-loop:
while [ ! -L device ]; do
if [ -L subsystem ];then
for x in *;do
if [ -L $x ]; then
This is the layout of /sys/block/dm-0:
The while loop gets to /sys/block/dm-0/slaves/dasda2
and cycles in an infinite loop.

Looks just like what I'm seeing when testing gfs2 partition installs (bug#438743)?
Fixed in mkinitrd-18.104.22.168-28 .
Verified with mkinitrd-22.214.171.124-28
