Hi everyone,

This patch implements the missing push-package/pop-package words which 
seem to be included in various Fcode bootloaders (even though they are 
not part of the official spec). With this patch applied, I now get the 
following on my Solaris image/Qemu boot:

OpenBIOS for Sparc64
Configuration device id QEMU version 1 machine id 0
UUID: 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000
Welcome to OpenBIOS v1.0 built on May 24 2009 10:08
   Type 'help' for detailed information

[sparc64] Booting file 'disk' with parameters ''
Not a bootable ELF image
Not a Linux kernel image
Not a bootable a.out image
Loading FCode image...

entry point is 0x4000
Evaluating FCode...
Loading package 1.4 04 Aug 1995 13:02:54.
open isn't unique.
FCode UFS Reader 1.12 00/07/17 15:48:16.
Loading: /platform//ufsboot
claim virt = 1 size = 200 align = 0
Loading: /platform/sun4u/ufsboot
Boot load failed.

So it looks as if we're now at the point where we need to start 
implementing the client interface claim/release functions.
