This issue is described at --> https://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=ibm10794153
It talks about AIX NIM, but it additionally affects both RHEL and SLES, all supported versions.
The symptoms were that the "be2net" driver would crash during install; the installer would sort-of recognize that there was an "eth0" but it was not possible to actually configure or do anything with it. Attempting to unload the driver caused a kernel panic. This only happened in a PowerPC environment while performing an "lpar_netboot". Booting to ISOs works.
