Triggered by /bootpart/boot/olpc.fth for unsigned builds, or built
into Open Firmware for signed builds.

The code reads the bootfw*.zip file and checks for whether it should
update.  It can be found in security.fth in the Open Firmware source.

It can display a battery icon as a reminder.

To see what this looks like, type show-no-power at the ok prompt.

If this isn't happening when it should, then there's a problem.
