I have hit it while booting already installed guest from qcow2 and edited its commandline from grub menu, so I have attached the full boot log.

Since we are still in development with bionic and things change quickly, please re-try with the very latest kernel which is right now:

$ sudo apt -y -qq update && rmadison --arch=ppc64el linux-generic | grep bionic
 linux-generic | | bionic | ppc64el
