That is something you can easily test. The current qemu-system-sparc
version (0.13rc or git) can be used with the original OBP from SS-5
(and with some quirks with LX and SS-10/20).

If you confirm that it works with OBP, but not with OpenBIOS, please
submit a report to the OpenBIOS team. And to avoid confusion, please
don't call OpenBIOS "qemu's OBP".
