[lorax] Let the plymouth dracut module back into the ppc64 upgrade.img

The 32MiB size limit does not apply to upgrade.img since it's installed
to /boot by redhat-upgrade-tool instead of downloaded through TFTP. The
warning in rebuild_initrds will still be triggered by an upgrade.img
over the limit, but this doesn't halt the compose and it's probably not
a bad thing to know about.
