PPC64LE Support for Consul, nomad and vault

Hi All,

I have been working on porting Vault to ppc64le and as of today, we are able to build it without any errors.

However, some test failures were observed which were primarily due to the unavailability of some of the dependent docker images like consul, nomad, (even Vault), cockroachDB etc. We have been able to build most of these images locally and use them in our testing and now most of the tests are working as expected.

The tests that are failing are related to MSSQL, SSH and DynamoDB. We are working on failures related to SSH and DynamoDB, where as MSSQL is not supported on ppc64le and we are thinking to make these tests conditional, any thoughts on this?

Is there any plan for official support for PPC64LE ?
I also raised a enhancement request on Vault : https://github.com/hashicorp/vault/issues/9855

Thanks in advance for your help!
