  * When DHCP is disabled via preseed, do not ask the DHCP question on
    s390x by propagating the seen flags from preseed-only keys to the
    interactive question. This is a side-effect / regression from
    1.135ubuntu3. LP: #1572607

  I am trying to install Ubuntu using a parm file so i won't get any prompts until SSH is available to connect to the guest.

  the "Auto-configure networking?" prompt keeps popping although i have
  specifically asked to turn it off.

  this used to work fine for me a week ago and i didn't even had the
  netcfg/disable_autoconfig=true in my parm file. now that i got the
  prompt (i assumed you guys fixed something) i added the
  netcfg/disable_autoconfig=true parameter but i still get the prompt.

  i am attaching the console output.

  This will affect affect IBM Wave functionality...
  IBM Wave allows the user to install Ubuntu without any need to access z/VM (Wave will do everything for you). when SSH is available the user can continue the installation. as we get the prompt in the middle of the installation the user can't continue the install as SSH is not yet available and he does not have access to the z/VM console
