Review of Power specific packages

The goal is to review all architecture packages with respect to their need during installer run and during boot. During installation it might require tools for managing hw (eg. disk arrays), during boot time it might want eg. udev rules.

Bug 1463749 leads to this review. The Host & Platform page contains some background from the Modularity point of view.
