just one minor thing... ... SLOF is the Slimline Open Firmware
developed by IBM for its Cell Blades and the YDL PowerStation... the
biosemu is part of SLOF, and it seems soon part of coreboot :-) but
i'd rather not call it SLOF since SLOF is a full IEEE1275 compliant OF
implementation including Forth, Client Interface, ...

I dont really have a good name for it... in my first mail i called it
YABEL (Yet another BIOS Emulation Layer) but that was intended as
fun... can we call it biosemu? (x86emu is the processor emulation and
biosemu the I/O / INT / Mem Emulation that makes the Option ROMs
run...) Or does anybody have a better proposal?
