Bug description:

   * Enable preseeding activation of dasd drives, and formating them
  with dasdfmt. Otherwise, unattended installation cannot be preseeded.

  [Test Case]

   * perform unattanded installation onto dasd drives:
   - single, unformatted
   - single, formatted
   - single, formatted, force reformat
   - multiple dasd drives

  [Regression Potential]

   * Interractive code path is unchanged, when no keys are preseeded.
  Code follows closely s390-zfcp preseed logic.

  [Other Info]
   * New preseed keys:

  d-i s390-dasd/dasd string 0.0.0200,0.0.0201
  d-i s390-dasd/auto_format boolean false
  (true, if dasd key used above)
  d-i s390-dasd/force_format boolean false
