Buglink: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1842774

SRU Justification:


* Add / activate support for IBM z15 and LinuxONE III systems


* a0e2251132995b962281aa80ab54a9288f9e0b6b a0e2251 "s390: add support for IBM z15 machines"

[Test Case]

* check and verify cpuinfo - regression testing is possible by Canonical/me

* functional testing is currently only doable by IBM

[Regression Potential] 

* There is regression potential with having new code in and the flags added/active

* but the code changes are pretty straight forward, just add config, cases and defs

* and are not used on existing systems, just on the new generation that is not yet out in the field

[Other Info]

* SRU of LP 1842916 merged with (this) LP 1842774
