Bug#989212: No LiveCD available for ppc64le

Package: debian-cd

Despite having a wide deployment of desktop-class systems, the ppc64le port does not have a live CD/DVD available.  This makes installation needlessly difficult on desktop machines that may or may not have external BMC or serial access, given that the installer images also assume no graphical output is available (console=hvc0 is passed by default).

Other distributions such as Fedora are currently offering LiveCDs for ppc64le.  Debian should do the same, with a version that includes the proprietary card-side firmware for commonly available GPUs with fully open source drivers (e.g. AMD GPUs).
