I'm sorry for not supplying a proper Changelog directly. Well, here it goes:

2010-01-28  Christian Schmitt  <address@hidden>

        * util/ieee1275/ fix the nvsetenv call to actually 
write the boot device to NVRAM. It did not produce an error but nothing was 
written. Now it is also in accordance with the nvsetenv         manpage.
Do not hardcode ofpathname and nvsetenv paths as these can be different         
on some systems.
