I'm writing a full OF implementation for OpenBios. It will also be
able to run in user space, which might be a better solution for things
like softboot (and besides, it makes development a lot easier).

It is supposed to be fully portable across all architectures that
run Linux.

Check out module Paflof from OpenBios CVS.

Nothing very mature yet, so don't get too excited now.


Cheers,

Segher
