You can do this currently if you have a recent version of xmon (I don't
remember when Paul actually changed xmon to use the early boot text).
Boot with BootX (with no video driver). Make sure the init code in
arch/ppc/xmon/start.c will map the fb and use prom_print().

I've just added the capability to do this when booting from Open Firmware.
