I suggest you checkout LinuxBIOSv2, then patch the Sun Ultra40 target
directly until you get it to work (it's easy to see what you changed that
way -- just do 'svn diff').

Then we can create a new mainboard directory and target etc...

What's the Super I/O? That should be the first thing to add. You need it
for serial output.

Edit src/mainboards/sunw/ultra40/auto.c and change the Super I/O which
is used there.

You also might need to change targets/sunw/ultra40/Config.lb to match
the size of your ROM chip and the payload etc. etc. There are other
things you'll probably need to change.

Start with the Super I/O, then report back to the mailing list and we'll
try to help...
