I see that you patched ofpath in the past. Could you give me some
reference materials on where you found out those convention ? It seems
that grub-ofpathname has always lived happily with:

$ /usr/sbin/grub-ofpathname /dev/sda2

The patch is quite trivial to make to make it behave like
yaboot/ofpath, but I'd like to polish the patch before sending it
upstream. Is this something that is known to be different in between
IBM, sparc64 vs powerpc (powermac) in OpenFirmware implementation ?
