#876 PR merged: Limit ppc64/ppc64le bootlist parameter to 5 entries

Labels: enhancement

PowerPC bootlist supports a maximum of 5 entries. If more than 5 paths is given, bootlist is not set.
This is particulary true when boot device is multipathed.
bootlist -m normal /dev/mapper/mpatha will failed if mpatha has more than 5 paths.
=> We need to check and limit to 5 the number of path given to the bootlist command.

@schabrolles I cannot verify this, so if you say so, then I accept it
