I have merge the part of the patch which doesn't use grub, as it is not
yet available. This will allow debian-installer to be built for the 
daily images [1] that I'll setup for ppc64el in the next days. I'll 
merge the other parts when grub is available.

I also have done some small changes to the packages list, and set the
DEBIAN_RELEASE variable to install unstable instead of testing, as the
latter is not yet available for ppc64el.
