If you mean by 'correct' that it has an 800k partition marked
Apple_Bootstrap directly after the driver partitions, the answer is
no.  This partition comes second after the drivers and is 16M in size

OF device path, this shouldn't matter, should it?  I mean, it used to
work with the same version of ybin and yaboot before I updated Open
