When booting, there are already some messages as to where find what:

Feb  7 16:58:28 pilhuhn mach: fc0 at 0x2114100 
Feb  7 16:58:28 pilhuhn mach: SCSI 53C90A Controller, Target 7, as sc0
at 0x2114000
Feb  7 16:58:28 pilhuhn mach: en0 at 0x2106000 
Feb  7 16:58:28 pilhuhn mach: dsp0 at 0x2108000 
Feb  7 16:58:28 pilhuhn mach: np0 at 0x200f000 
Feb  7 16:58:28 pilhuhn mach: sound0 at 0x200e000 

Also (not for the faint hearted) otool -Vvt /mach gives quite
interesting output :)

If I understood that right, then there is at least a _printf in ROM,
that can be used by the kernel to give output.
