Ah I think there is a distinct possibility that the memory properties 
are being generated incorrectly on SPARC32 :/

Artyom: any chance you could send the output of the following in OBP?

cd /

cd /memory

cd /virtual-memory

My suspicion is the translations property is wrong (definitely the 
virtual address part of the translation struct because it doesn't 
respect #address-cells) and also possibly the mode.
