Fair enough! I guess the alternative is to get Power nodes into the RDO
cloud? Any other ideas?

Not sure about this. The image used for container builds on x86_64
(upstream-centos-7) seems to use quite a few elements . I'm not clear
on why each of them are required, but I would assume a power node would
need an image built with these elements as well.
