Usually not. But OFW on the Pegasos (SmartFirmware) is broken. It wouldn't
surprise me when other ofppc hardware still works.

I cannot remember that /dev/openfirm ever worked on the Pegasos. For a test
you can try ofctl(8). It freezes the Pegasos probably in exactly the same
way as the radeon driver does.
