I have started working on this now and first had a go at the ofpathname script from
the powerpc-utils package [1].

The script now prints out the correct Open Firmware path names on my iBook G4:

root@test-adrian1:~/powerpc-utils# ofpath /dev/sda
root@test-adrian1:~/powerpc-utils# ./scripts/ofpathname /dev/sda

It needs to be tested on other PowerMacs such as the G3 or the G5, so if anyone
has such a machine, I would be interested in some tests with the paths compared
between the ofpath script from Yaboot and my patched version of ofpathname from
my mac-support branch in [1].
