Very nice, since it is now consistent with the default initrd address we
use in the zipl bootloader for the installed system (bug 526339).

One more usability comment below which is unrelated to the bugs.

 * minimal lpar ins file

Don't you want to change this text here. It appears to the user on the
hardware management console (HMC) or the service element (SE) when they
IPL an LPAR as a kind of menu item to choose from and that they know
WHAT they are about to IPL in that LPAR. It does not even say that this
is Fedora or RHEL respectively nor its release number, not even that it
is Linux.

The problem with changing it in this file is we'd go from having this be
static data placed on the install media to having it be generated file.  Then
we'd have to get the product name string here somehow, which we do not have at
anaconda build time.  That's generally supplied at tree generation time.

I'd say if anything is to change this string, it should be the tree
composition tools and not anaconda.
