Humm, ok.
However, in this case 'ppc' (could be 32 or 64 as it is not specified) 
is more generic than 'ppc64'.

Indeed, however I can only test on CHRP. I'll remove the check in the 
upcomming patch.

The patch also include a small code to create the /proc/ppc/rtas entry. 
Should this be done here, or somewhere in arch/powerpc/chrp/setup.c ?

I will re submit a patch as soon as I can.
