I accidently booted a wrong kernel and it could not mount the root filesystem.
So I entered "halt" at the root device prompt and expected to get back to
OF, so I could reboot a different kernel. However, the OF prompt was dead.
This is reproducable at least on one machine.


Need to investigate, filing as a reminder
