I can provide the PROM image if necessary for testing. Can we make NVRAM environment variables OBP compatible or persistent some how so we can run either OBP or OpenBIOS?Maybe, if there is a good spec for the variable format and other structures.
I think adding a persistent mode to NVRAM so it's contents can be either generated for OpenBIOS like it is now or read from and written to a file based on what Open Boot PROM does. That way you don't need to add a new mode to Open BIOS and you don't need to know what Open Boot PROM does.
