[PATCH 0/5] Make d-i/grub-installer work for NewWorld Power Macs

## Make d-i/grub-installer work for NewWorld Power Macs ##

When applied, the following five patches should make d-i/grub-installer
work on NewWorld Power Macs.

This was tested during Debian installations for the ppc64 architecture
in "expert" mode on the following machine types:

* PowerMac11,2 (late 2005 model with 1 x 2.0 GHz PowerPC 970MP)
* PowerMac7,3 (early 2005 model with 2 x 2.3 GHz PowerPC 970FX)

...with 1 x SATA HDD (with a capacity of 1 TB) installed, using a glass
console. Results for "non-expert" mode installations are pending.

This is currently untested for the powerpc architecture (specifically
for 32 bit NewWorld Power Macs).

Frank Scheiner (5):
  Install hfsutils in-target for NewWorld Power Macs (adapted from    
  Detect and select NewWorld bootstrap partitions (adapted from    
  Handle HFS file systems (format, mount, unmount, permanent mount).
    Override     $bootfs, $bootfstype, $bootdev and $state for NewWorld
    Power Macs.
  Create and configure the missing CHRP boot script.
  Adapt grub-install parameters and finally perform GRUB installation.
    Make     CHRP script bootable by OpenFirmware. Configure NVRAM
    defaults but do not     boot automatically.
