I have read this stuff. But I have not yet looked at the source code for
MacBSD, so I really do not know how this stuff works.

But let me ask you this: as the ADB stuff seems to assume usage of low-mem
Apple Global variables, how is this fact dealt with by the MacBSD kernel ?
What is the load address of the kernel ? Is this low-mem space kept free,
so the ROM routines can freely muck around in it ? It is clear that if
anything that is needed for MacBSD is loaded in the low-mem area, the
result will be rather ill-fated when ROM routines are then called, and the
(virtual) sparks will fly.
