Log Message:
PR/13749 - Incorrect options specified for dd(1) in tape installs.

Cleanup dd options accordingly to the following policy:
    1) put if, of, bs, conv in this order
    2) for reading/writing from/to disk don't use sync
    4) reading from tape - use sync
    3) writing to tape - use osync
