    New plugin - lpar
    here is a patch against 4.10 adding a new plugin "lpar".
    LPAR stands for Logical PARtitions, which is the virtualization solution
    for IBM high-end power systems running AIX.
    The standard cpu plugin shows cpu usage as a percentage of each cpu
    available to the system, but in an LPAR the number of cpus and their
    apparent power can vary according to the load of every LPAR sharing the
    same hardware and to the policy set by the admin.
    This new plugin allows to monitor real (physical) CPU usage of the
    virtualized system, as well as some other metrics specific to IBM's
    partitioning solution.
