s390/dasd: fix no record found for raw_track_access
For DASD devices in raw_track_access mode only full track images are
read and written.
For this purpose it is not necessary to do search operation in the

this might fail if the searched record is not found on a track.
Currently the driver sets a value of 1 in the search field for the first
record after record zero. This is the default for disks not in
raw_track_access mode but record 1 might be missing on a completely
There has not been any problem with this on IBM storage servers but it
might lead to errors with DASD devices on other vendors storage servers.
Fix this by setting the search field to 0. Record zero is always available
even on a completely empty track.
