I'm involved in a project where OpenBIOS for Sparc32 is actually used on bare metal (in a FPGA). OpenBIOS is installed in a 16MB NOR FLASH. There are a few QEMU dependencies and some small issues which don't appear in QEMU (for example, the MMU activation sequence does not work IRL, there is a small bug in wuf.S ...). Regards, and thank you all for your hard work !  Olivier
