Current status (on CVS) :
Grub 2 boots to rescue mode, ls is buggy.
Only tested in netboot environment (my U10 can boot grubof
straightforward, it's an ELF64 file).

Current status (on my disk) :
Grub 2 has module support, ls is still buggy, I tested some modules and
they work - loaded from disk. It still can't boot anything.

I have to make a patch, but i have few time now (and no internet at
home, and almost no "home" for now...). I haven't moved my U10 yet, so I
can't work on it now. I think everything will be ok around the middle of

I'm sorry not to have synced the cvs to my current progress on the port,
module loading is quite blocking. What you can still work on is that ls
problem : it loops forever, listing drives and throwing some OpenBoot
errors. I think the problem is in disk/ieee1275/ofdisk.c, but I haven't
 searched much. Same symptoms in normal mode (when module loading works).
