I've chosen to leave the following components disabled for now as I'm
unsure how relevant they are for Debian:

ipl_tools are basic tools used to specify which actions to perform after
a shutdown/reboot command, such as specifying from which disk to boot.
These tools can be very useful for system administrators (especially on
LPAR) and even for install tools (when a reboot is necessary, the
installer can specify to boot the installed medium instead of ending up
in the installer again). My recommendation would be to provide them per
default for anyone who installs the s390-tools package.
