I've been working on Sparc32/64 support for Qemu. Currently Qemu for Sparc32 
uses Proll as a system boot rom, but it's not a very good starting point for 
Sparc64. Basically, Linux expects a bit too much from the OpenFirmware 
interface, like Forth support etc.

I guess OpenBIOS would be a better choice. How complete do you think 
OpenBIOS is, can it boot Linux for example on some architecture? Is there 
any support for 64-bit architectures?
