Known problem.  I fixed this for Efika, but for some reason my fix didn't work
for PowerMac.  Anyway, first of all I'd verify that if you revert to CVS
version before this commit:

  2007-02-21  Hollis Blanchard  <address@hidden>

  (both of them, actually)

it works again.

I believe the kern/powerpc/ieee1275/init.c part of things doesn't need to be
touched again after:

  2007-10-07  Robert Millan  <address@hidden>

and that the problem affecting PowerMac was introduces with the rest of Hollis
commit (that would be grub-mkimage.c ?).
