An extra match line in macppc/interrupts.c:init_openpic() should do it ( 
assuming it is sufficiently OpenPIC-like ).

Because devices that need to register interrupts may attach before the
interrupt controller does. Also, there may be more than one ( for
example, some old world PowerBooks have two cascaded ohare PICs, some
ofppc or prep boxes have OpenPIC or IVR and an i8259 ) which would
complicate things further if each one would attach on its own. It's
just simpler this way.

Yes, this needs to be fixed. I think the code assumes 1GB of RAM and
the address should be LOW_RAM_SIZE - 0x00400000.

have fun
