d-i & IBM CHRP testing

This is as far as I got. I get the error message with both graphics and
RS232 console. I tested it on both p610 and 44P-170. I booted via
BOOTP/tftp and mounted the root file system via NFS.

It is also interesting that the 'rootpath' parameter is empty, see below.

Kernel is version 2.4.18 from kernel.org. I compiled in additional network
and root filesystem support.

Any ideas?
