This is an attempt to fix:
Libvirt BZ: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1180486

Libvirt currently assumes ISA_based floppy disks to be available across all
architectures and machine types. However, PowerPC Book 3S compatible ('ie pseries)
virtual machines do not support Floppy disks.

This patch series prevents libvirt from launching ppc64[le] -based 'pseries'
VMs with floppy devices.
