Any ideas on bare metal CentOS under OPAL, Power8 with either latest firmware levels (FW840 or OP810)?

The correct answer is that if it’s supported in RHEL 7.2 ppc64le, then it’s supported by CentOS 7 1511 ppc64le.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 (little endian) is currently supported on PowerVM and PowerHV (bare metal) [1]
