Yah, they use tables/scripts in the x86 ROM. As I wrote in the previous
email, it seems we have at least part of these, though we may need
additional bits & pieces to figure out how to re-init the flat panel

Another possibility would be to manage to run the Open Firmware driver
inside an emulated environment, or the OS X driver in MOL and trace what
it does.
