This came up a while back. I tried to talk to one OLPC person about
it, w.r.t. using OF tree instead of ACPI, but the reponse was not at
all encouraging. It seemed you had to buy the whole package, including
an open firmware bios and callbacks, or you could not really use the
OF tree. I can find the email if anyone cares.

I think we should just continue to use _MP_.
