Bug description:
  When booting the Ubuntu 14.03.4 installer on an OpenPower machine with
  a VGA monitor attached, we see no output - the only installer output
  is over the physical UART (or SOL session).

  Petitboot is displayed over both VGA and UART, but not the installer

  It seems like the ast GPU driver isn't present on the installer image
  (but is present for the non-installer kernels), which is required for
  graphics output on these machines.
