the only missing words that might be critical for operation are
key?, alloc-mem, free-mem. We should be able to use the values
from the LinuxBIOS table to initialize memory allocation. Can we
assume memory being one linear chunk?
A nice thing to have is package/properties support because that would
allow us to write initialization drivers as packages, using the OO
capabilities of Open Firmware instead of having one linear bunch of code
that is executed for initialization.
I started writing an fcode evaluator in Forth. The skeleton is working,
but some words for flow control are missing. This will allow to execute
FCode binaries instead of forth source code with paflof.
