I am just using the OpenBios for now. We will be spinning our own board
within the year so I was going to delay looking into doing the PPCBoot
code until then. I was able to look at the PCI registers when the kernel
booted and they appeared to be OK. For the hell of it I tried to change them
in the kernel and it hung during boot. I did not see in the docs the constraints
on when I could change those registers. Is it possible to do it very early in
the Linux boot code?
