Bug Description

MAAS currently does not support Power8 which uses the PPC64EL ubuntu from the ports archive.

[Impact]
 * Include changes to allow support for Power8

[Testcase]
 * Install maas and probe, enlist, commission a power8 machine, using powerkvm at this point only

[Regression Potential]
 * Minimal, changes are to separate files that are conditionally used if power8 is detected during probe of selected machines.

Is this all done now? The work so far will be in 1.5.2 so if it is done, please mark it fix-released. If not, please remove the 1.5.2 milestone. Thanks.
