There might be a shortcut / workaround for this problem. As far as I see it the
OF path for the device is only needed if 'nonvram' is *not* set in yaboot.conf.

On QS2x however we don't need the NVRAM update so the conversion from the linux
device name to the OF device name might be unnecessary. So we could just
default
to 'nonvram' on QS2x and place the lookup code in a code path that isn't
executed in the nonvram case.

Would that be a possible workaround or am I missing something?
