Title:
  yaboot cannot handle kernels and/or initrds >6MB uncompressed for
  netbooting

Status in yaboot-installer:
  Fix Released
Status in yaboot package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  With 5.10, the netboot images for powerpc and powerpc64 have exceeded 6MB uncompressed for either the kernel 
  (powerpc64) or the ramdisk (powerpc).  Yaboot is unable to do a netboot with those images since they exceed a 
  limitation within yaboot that limits the uncompressed images to 6MB each.  Ideally, work on yaboot2 will be 
  completed and this limitation will be removed, but in the meantime, the kernel and ramdisk images need to be pruned 
  for netbooting.
