what exactly do they do? I attached them to yesterday's CVS and it 
did not fix booting solaris at least ;-)

The one problem with booting solaris is  that it is supposed to push
stuff to the stack which it doesn't do apparently, so OpenBIOS operates
on wrong values when doing the v2_eval function on the forth code.

Its unlikely that this alone will fix booting solaris, but as it is
definitely wrong at the moment and we dont get any error messages from
solaris except an exception its at least a start...

Any help is appreciated here.

If someone has boot CDs or ISO images of SunOS 4 / Solaris 2.4 or older,
any help in testing is very welcome.
