Historically PowerPC 64 was always supported with qemu-kvm in RHEL.

In future RHEL-9 it is being discontinued and this was addressed

  commit 03cc3c9064322ac4028a2213105cd230fe28c013

    spec: Do not build qemu driver for Power on RHEL-9

when the specfile was cleaned up to remove RHEL-7 support:

  commit 0f601d2f868f2017cdd16e0a7ca90a59e7d5e120
  Author: Andrea Bolognani <abologna at redhat.com>
  Date:   Wed May 5 19:30:46 2021 +0200

    spec: Bump min_fedora and min_rhel

it also removed the logic that applied to RHEL-8 wrt arch list
and lost PowerPC 64 support on 8. This reverts that part of the
change but with the condition reversed to prioritize the future
