Is it recognized with the original installer ? If it's the case, it
means there's definitly something wrong with Zsombor image and that we
can't report bug on it.

I checked once again ofpath source code and saw that the information
from /sys I asked is useless. Sorry for the trouble. Yaboot definitely
doesn't work with the "new" ATA stack nor SCSI devices
without /proc/scsi.

The work from Joseph Jezak seen here:
http://lists.ozlabs.org/pipermail/yaboot-devel/2010-September/000345.html is very interesting, but we must integrate it in the current ofpath; we can't wipe everything like that. Also, ofpathname is interesting, but it's a too big step to take, IMHO. Furthermore, I can't look up the code because of licensing issues.

So, for now, no SATA for yaboot. Sorry it took so much time to
understand it myself. I'll try to do something with Joseph's code, or,
may I ask you directly : do you want to help on integrating your code to
current ofpath, Joseph ?
