Newbie - hope you folks can spare some enlightenment -

Does OpenFirmware code get mmap'ed into kernel space and get used during normal operations?
I understand a bit about the openprom filesystem; is that an interface to the data structures only or
does actual OF code get run by Linux? Does it disappear like real-mode x86 BIOSes?



Thanks.
