Not a code change for the branch, but it would be nice if powerpc64le-linux 
emulation would be removed from the workers so that we can have more 
reliable CI results on that platform by making it use the OSUOSL POWER9 
build machine that has been recently added (guixp9). Some packages can be 
built with emulation, but some very early in the dependency tree can’t 
(e.g., libsigsegv) so I don’t see much benefit in trying.

Mathieu made the change with commit c0a9022d8234 (“hydra: cuirass: Disable 
powerpc64le emulation.”) on the maintenance repo (thanks!), so what is left 
is deploying it on every hydra build machine for it to take effect.
