Ubuntu 22.04 support for Novalink on Power10 scale-out servers

For Power9 Ubuntu was supported for Novalink.

For Power10 it is not, and only RHEL is supported and it is not free.

We need to have Ubuntu 22.04 support for Novalink on Power10 scale-out servers. Ubuntu 22.04 is a long term support so it is worth to test it on Power10 for Novalink.

    Important for our customers and keep in mind that Ubuntu 22.04 will be supported for 5 years: perfect for brand new Power10 !

    In my opinion it is a good thing to support a truely free distro such as Ubuntu 22.04

    Vital for our business as Ubuntu is much easier to implement and use in that case.
