That sucks, I guess that Sun only released the OpenSPARC version. In
version, the hardware implements the hypervisor (sun4v).

The mode of operation in this version is that OBP talks to a
hypervisor, it does not access hardware directly. So for example the
low level code could be used in making OpenBIOS run on top of the
hypervisor, but would this be useful? Higher level code could be used
elsewhere, but I'm no Forth expert.
The hypervisor sources are very Niagara-specific.
Actually I don't know what to do with this otherwise very nice package.
