Okay - looks like the romvec obp_devclose() function was broken on 
SPARC32 causing a stack underflow. With latest SVN, I can now see a lot 
more romvec debug activity on kernel boot, however it still crashes :(

Artyom, can you confirm the fix in SVN works for you, and also whether 
we are failing with the same error as before or whether this is 
something new? (i.e. the boot is getting further)
