Depends on what your requirements are. Possible is always everything as
long as you are willing to change enough code ;)
Since there is soon half a dozen open source openfirmware, the question
is: Do you _really_ want to reinvent the wheel another time.
I saw your requests to the LinuxBIOS mailinglist and other lists before,
asking interesting questions and never coming up with anything after
that, so I keep this really short. If you are serious with your attempt
come back with more detailed questions rather than a list of links.

In practice, this is pretty much true.

well, .. Dont know what to say...
