I've had the same problem, and solved it (look for "... virtual mode" 
2007-10-08 in the archives). However, the commit procedure to OFW is somehow 
unclear, at least to me. Currently, only Mitch commits to the x86 part of 
OFW, and blueswirl hacks on sparc -- any others?

Mitch, do you insist on checking all patches to the x86 part yourself, or do 
you allow commits by others? One Ack or two? Or must we split/branch the 
repository for OFW as coreboot payload?
