Ah yes - I know Andreas was working to try and add PPC64 support to OpenBIOS a few months back, and he got stuck trying to interface to RTAS. I'm not sure whether he got anywhere with PPC32 though.

At the moment Andreas is away, but if you are able to offer some development resource to help with this then please come and join us over on the OpenBIOS list and get the discussion started there.
