Open Firmware Crazy Shit

[ from the crunch-time dept. ]

Ok, so I started writing real actual code. Amazing. Anyway, I discovered that Open Firmware is more than a little fiddly to deal with. I understand most of the code I have encountered though I’m not sure why it is necessary to relocate the GOT (Global Offset Table) before init and move it back after. Little things like this I will hopefully figure out later on today.
