I think that we face some kind of product bug inside leap which causes power8 workers to not boot properly anymore.

I disabled rebootmgr on these machines for now with `systemctl --now disable rebootmgr`. I also made a MR to our salt repo so the service does not get enabled again: https://gitlab.suse.de/openqa/salt-states-openqa/-/merge_requests/421

If you really, really need to reboot the machine (or it gets unavailable in the meantime) you can use these commands in the petitboot shell (over ipmi) to get it booting once:

**malbec**: `kexec -l /var/petitboot/mnt/dev/sdb1/boot/vmlinux-5.3.18-lp152.57-default --initrd=/var/petitboot/mnt/dev/sdb1/boot/initrd-5.3.18-lp152.57-default --command-line="root=UUID=ae18adf5-d27e-4fa1-93a1-6ab55263c29d nospec kvm.nested=1 kvm_intel.nested=1 kvm_amd.nested=1 kvm-arm.nested=1 crashkernel=210M" && kexec -e`
**QA-Power8-4-kvm**: `kexec -l /var/petitboot/mnt/dev/sdb2/boot/vmlinux-5.3.18-lp152.57-default --initrd=/var/petitboot/mnt/dev/sdb2/boot/initrd-5.3.18-lp152.57-default --command-line="root=UUID=eebe647f-e867-416e-a0fa-7a6732bfcf9d nospec kvm.nested=1 kvm_intel.nested=1 kvm_amd.nested=1 kvm-arm.nested=1 crashkernel=210M" && kexec -e`
**QA-Power8-5-kvm**: `kexec -l /var/petitboot/mnt/dev/sda2/boot/vmlinux-5.3.18-lp152.57-default --initrd=/var/petitboot/mnt/dev/sda2/boot/initrd-5.3.18-lp152.57-default --command-line="root=UUID=89ca2dff-86af-478b-8d4c-2a45ca689fd5 nospec kvm.nested=1 kvm_intel.nested=1 kvm_amd.nested=1 kvm-arm.nested=1 crashkernel=210M" && kexec -e`
