The defaults should do the right thing. I would be very surprised if
stfncmp() was what you wanted to use because truncates compatible
values on compare. I believe Sparc has historical reasons for using
it, but new platforms shouldn't need it.

On that point, I think I'm going to change the default override to
specifically test for CONFIG_SPARC instead of doing the weird
defined(OF_ROOT_NODE_ADDR_CELLS_DEFAULT)/defined(of_compat_cmp) I
currently have it doing. That would probably make this separate
header completely unnecessary (see below).

However, the #ifdef/#elseif/#else/#endif approach also makes the
assumption that only one kind of OFW will be supported by any given
kernel. Or for that matter, both OFW and the flattened tree also
become mutually exclusive due to the default behaviour override.

Besides, aren't the function declarations just the interface defined
by the prom extraction code? Is there any need to #ifdef that API? I
would think those function prototypes should be defined by the header
for the prom extraction code.
