This is one approach, and I'm not against it.

Another way is to create a linux/openfw.h that does nothing
but include asm/prom.h as step 1.  Step 2 is to convert all
the include sites, and step 3 is to move the relevant
prom.h bits into openfw.h

To be honest, since you're the one doing all of the hard work I think
you should be allowed to make the choice on how to go about this :-)
