Bug Description

on ppc64el, using autopartitioning with LVM, the system will install but after rebooting petitboot won't find the /boot content that is on LVM, because petitboot doesn't handle LVM yet.
So the system will not be bootable.
The changes that cause this are in the following changelog :

especially all the "+ $lvmignore{ }" for ppc64el.
Thanks for helping,
