Short update, with yesterday's API model 4.2.25 release, there's basic
support for s390 available in ovirt-engine. At this point in time, there
are no ovirt yum repositories for the s390x architecture - not sure what
the process would be to add s390x repositories and how to build the
binary RPMs at least for the host packages (i.e. vdsm-*). Maybe it would
possible to use the s390-koji infrastructure used to build Fedora for s390x?
