Hm. We could either protect that code with an:

if (!is_geode())
return;
Or I could add the OpenFirmware patches which would allow us to get
rid of this code, and instead check for the existence of OFW using
that.

The former is quick and easy; the latter is (imo) nicer, so long as
people don't have problems w/ the OFW code. :)
