 Replying to [comment:1 Quozl]:
 > The substitution done in ''fixup-bootpath'' loses the tail of the
 string.  There might be a way to avoid that.

 There was a way.  Fixed in
 [http://code.coreboot.org/p/openfirmware/source/commit/3656/ svn 3656] and
 available in [http://dev.laptop.org/~quozl/q4d29ja.rom q4d29ja.rom].

 The ''/proc/device-tree/chosen/ramdisk'' data might have been used
 instead, as it turned out.

 Output from console after boot:
 bash-4.2# cat /proc/device-tree/chosen/bootpath ; echo
 /sd at d4280000/disk at 3:\boot\runos2.zip//ext2-file-system:\boot\runos2.zip
 bash-4.2# cat /proc/device-tree/chosen/ramdisk ; echo
