powerpc: various issues

I wonder what is the sense in keeping this "various issues" wording. Just
remove it and put the below line there.

    The PowerPC port has several issues in this release:

            * installation from floppy on OldWorld PowerPC is broken because
	     no device node is created for the swim3 module and as miboot is
	     not included

You did not take into account my comments, there is no such thing as an

You can add :

  * IBM pseries on serial port : finish-install does not set the /etc/inittab
