This doesn't make sense to me, because the compute nodes (as far as I understand from IBM's papers online) are not running any version of a Linux kernel. See

Also, the vendor clearly should be "ibm", not "bgp" (and what about BlueGene/L, which runs essentially the same operating system?)

That's why I suggested something like powerpc64-ibm-bluegene, or possibly powerpc64-ibm-bluegene-{version} if a version can be detected and is useful.
