  SVN rev 183181 on 2008-09-19 11:00:14Z by sobomax
  On PowerPC send output to both "/chosen/stdout" and "screen" nodes, unless
  they point to the very same device. This should make loader usable on
  some (all?) PowerMacs, where "/chosen/stdout" is disconneted from the
  "screen" by the OF init process by default, except when user actually
  has requested interaction with OF by holding ALT-CMD-O-F. Along with
  rev 183168 this should provide a way to build bootable FreeBSD/ppc
  installation or live CD that works OOB. Also, it should bring PowerMac
  experience closer to that on other arches.
