Run linaro aarch64 images with f21 virt-install + libvirt

Linaro generates some minimal openembedded based aarch64 disk images, which are useful for virt testing. There's simple instructions over here for running them with qemu on an x86 host. But with Fedora 21 packages, you can also these images with virt-install + libvirt + qemu.

Output looks like:
 Starting install...

(Maybe you're wondering, what about fedora images? They are a bit different, since they expect to run with UEFI. I'll blog about that soon once I finish some testing)
