I like the idea! However I burned an DVD for a PowerBook G4 and I only see the regular disc icon.
What's your device model? (based on other sources your patch looks correct. Maybe my firmware is too old for this feature)

@rmacklem, 'vfs.root.mountroot' is used as a kernel parameter to specify (or override) where is the root filesystem to be mounted and its partition type. It's usually something like "vfs.root.mountroot=ufs:/dev/da0s1a" if you use a local disk, or "vfs.root.mountroot=nfs:192.168.0.1:/tftpboot/root" if using nfs.
use strncmp instead of strstr in order to match only the beginning of the string

LGTM. Thanks, it fixes the kernel crashing with QEMU -M ppce500.
During tests I found that when a eligible NIC exists and network isn't prepared for bootp, it cannot load the local root file system.
More investigation is required:

Suspending this since it requires changes to continue.
The OS revision part is now being discussed in D34429.

Makes sense. I've been using powerpc64le on Raptor Blackbird and QEMU and it looks solid.

assume it's a draft until proper tests are in progress
LGTM. Would be good to add arm group for review and smoke test this change

I boot-tested this patch and no regression found on:
- QEMU VM POWER9 with hardware acceleration (hw.ncpu: 144)
- bare metal POWER9 hw.ncpu: 16

correct comments wording
Justin, I tested this patch on Blackbird and it looks good, just need to be rebased to latest main. Also tested it along with D30626.

I tested this patch with D31232 few weeks ago on the Blackbird and it looks good to me once it's approved.
