MKSYSB on RedHat

We have 2 virtualized RHEL LPAR's on Power 6 and i am just very surprised about the RHEL. What i miss in RHEL is the same mentioned in this Issue "a MKSYSB tool"
neither storix nor any other Solution can make a bare metal backup of RHEL on Power. A filesystem backup can be done by TSM or whatever. But it comes to punch of Probs, when the LPAR is multipath enabled, and that is a must, when it is virtualized.
I won't give my RHEL LPAR's away and install it on VMWare, because it is easier but there is no solution taking a system image from a RHEL LPAR.
Someone said do a "dd" or "dump"

I am working with AIX since 14 years and i would like to participate in mksysb for linux.
