Isn't this a bit like having /proc/ppc64/cpuinfo, i.e. pretty dumb from
userspace's point of view?  If I want to write a program to update
the progress element of rtas, doesn't it make sense to have a single
/proc/rtas so the same program works equally well on ppc32 and ppc64?

I might be missing something here though.
