We've now disabled the powerpc architecture in xenial (which should
cause no further builds to be created) and deactivated the powerpc
builders.  I plan to leave things in this state for a little while to
confirm that no further powerpc builds are being created and that
nothing else comes up, but after that we'll start tearing down the
builders permanently.
