Greetings folks,

I've been curious if anyone sees a reason to keep PowerPC PReP
partition support in Ironic?

A few things to consider:

* This is/was to support partition images.
* We generally shy away from partition images at this point. We
recommend whole disk images.
* PowerPC.... And I don't think many (any?) operators will be doing
power deployments of Z* and beyond OpenStack once it is released.
* This is not tested in CI, because Power hardware...

Thoughts? Feelings? Concerns?
