SRU Template prepared

Once ppa is built:
- Regression tests
- per case tests

** Description changed:

+ [Impact]
+ 
+  * on start of qemu-system-ppc64 MSR_SF is not set correctly
+    So it doesn't start 64bit as it should
+ 
+  * Todays guests usually work around this and are fine, but it is 
+    incorrect and might be an issue down the road. Furthermore this is also 
+    a fixup to some verification tests at the same time.
+ 
+ [Test Case]
+ 
+  * 1. deploy xenial + HWE kernel on a ppc64el box
+    2. sudo apt-get install qemu-kvm -y
+    3. git clone --depth=1 
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/virt/kvm/kvm-unit-tests.git
+    4. cd kvm-unit-tests
+    5. ./configure --endian=little; make
+    6. sudo ppc64_cpu --smt=off
+    7. sudo ./run_tests -v
+ 
+ [Regression Potential]
+ 
+  * The changes are ppc only and provided by IBM so the potential risk is
+    retained to the owner of the Area.
+    Further the change is very small, so it has a very low amount of being 
+    misunderstood.
+ 
+ [Other Info]
+ 
+  * n/a

  Similar to bug 1723904, bug 1712803.
  The failed "emulator" test from kvm-unit-test will pass with qemu-2.7.1 built 
from source.
