restore multiple vscsi mappings of one disk on a VIOS with viosbr

If a disk is mapped on one VIOS to several LPARs via vscsi viosbr backs up these mappings but does only restore the first mapping. So viosbr does not restore the VIOS to the same state it had before the backup. viosbr -restore is unable to perform a mkvdev -f.

    This was addressed as a defect and delivered in the service stream (as well as new releases). Current fix levels of all supported VIOS releases handle this properly. Thanks.
