to this with anything you'd like to add, and I'll try to maintain
and post it as a periodic reminder. Here is what I have so far.
please chime in!
Powerpc Todo list:
Unify ofwboot more. Share code better between macppc/ofppc.
... like sparc64. Not sure if it's possible to have a truly unified
Floppy support for ofppc.
I should really write a macppc floppy driver at some point but I
guess there's not a lot of demand.
Audio support for IBM/RS6000 on ofppc.
Isn't that some off the shelf ISA thingie? At least in some machines?
Look into fast soft interrupts.
rasops/genfb driver in libsa to allow ports like prep/bebox to talk to
the vga console early.
VGA text mode might be easier/smaller.
SMP support for bebox. (icky?)
Lots of syncing and flushing no other PowerPC port needs.
Make ofctl work on ofppc.
What's the problem here? It works fine on macppc, shark and sparc64.
