Enable console during kernel boot on Power

On Power systems console should be added the kernel command line
in the following order: 'console=tty0 console=hvc0'.
The first one is the graphical console. The last one is the serial
console. The kernel enables all the consoles pointed through the
kernel command line. However, only the last one will receive
input/output during kernel boot. All the other consoles will be
enabled after the boot.

make disk image (disk.img) contain only /boot.

This removes everything except /boot from a disk.img.
On first boot of the disk image, the loaded initramfs in /boot
will copy itself to the target. Since /boot is not in the initramfs
there is no problem copying to the blank target.

The result of this is a disk1.img file that is much smaller.
for comparison, the output of this local build and the 20160722 daily
for x86_64:
   disk.img 17961472 -> 12846080 (29% saved)
   rootfs.img.gz 16744808 -> 11899176 (29% saved)

If curtin's src/init doesn't find a root filesystem (no /sbin/init) but
does find a filesystem with the right label (cirros-rootfs), then it
copies itself to the target and continues booting as if it were always

src/init now uses search_for_root and search_for_blank to find root
filesystem and blank disk. It would be nice to move the "install"
hunk out of src/init also. We need to improve this too, to deal with
existing files overwriting and such.

replace use of perl in encrypt-pass with python3

Probably should just use python here or python3 and ditch the shell
wrapper. But this works for now.

the tool. This one changes the password.

set default password to 'gocubsgo'

The smiley face was hard or impossible to type in some scenarios.
The new password still pays homage to the Cubs.

Thanks to all those who typed 'cubswin:)' and helped to bring the
Cubs a World Series victory in 2016.

Add support for Grub2 on Power architectures.

Power bootable qcow2 images require Grub to be installed on a PreP
Boot partition. This patch enables CirrOS to boot from Grub2/PreP.
And, now produces disk images for ppc64, powerpc and ppc64le.
