Offer Active Memory Expansion (AME) on the Power10 processor-based scale out systems.

We have received requests to offer Active Memory Expansion (AME) on the Power10 processor-based scale out systems.​ Others have asked about why it has been 'removed' compared to the POWER9 based scale-out servers. Partners have already requested this feature for their opportunities.​ Multiple customers use this feature on existing Scale Out systems.

    This is a core function of AIX and an expected option on all system capable of running AIX 67 and 7.
    Why on earth would it stop being available on the latest and greatest Power10 Scale-out?
