Description

Motivation

During our work on #99663 we encountered that we only covered backend::spvm with testing, not backend::pvm. Trying to develop a test it feels more and more like backend::pvm is unused. A select count(*) from job_settings where key='BACKEND' and value = 'pvm'; reveals no hits for both o3 and osd and the git history also looks like everyone for PowerVM is using either pvm_hmc or spvm. I think the best approach would be to declare pvm itself deprecated and fade it out of use.

Marked the backend as deprecated with https://github.com/os-autoinst/os-autoinst/pull/1848 . Eventually we can remove the code. I would wait at least some months until then. Keeping the ticket open to wait for some days in case there is unexpected feedback from any production uses.

I received no feedback so far so I assume the current state with the deprecation message is fine. Wrote a comment in https://github.com/os-autoinst/os-autoinst/pull/1848#issuecomment-973955809 pinging some people. We can actually resolve the ticket and remove the backend whenever it makes problems and enough time has passed
