Ugly hack

Description of problem:

Currently, pungi handles the ppc64p7 subarch by setting yumarch to ppc64p7. This causes pungi to gather both ppc64 and ppc64p7 RPMs in the gather stage (good), but it only installs p7 RPMs into the runtime image (bad, since this prevents the installer from running on another other than a POWER7 system). 

The correct behavior should be: 

- Gather both ppc64 and ppc64p7
- Create the runtime installer image with only ppc64 RPMs

I have an ugly hack (attached) which causes yumarch to be set to ppc64 when the yum object is reinitialized from the doBuildInstall function but I'm sure there's a better way to do this.
