Peter uses OSF Mach.  I think the easiest thing to do is adding the
GNU Mach linux gluecode support.

I wonder how easy it will be to add support for Open Firmware
devices.  Using Open Firmware it is really easy to access a disk and
the console, but I don't know if that works in a kernel.  Perhaps we
can Open Firmware until it can be replaced with real drivers.

Soon I will try to make Mach work on my mac using open firmware...
