Good point, I didn't notice that there is a CHRP header and assumed that we need
this file on sparc and sparc64 as well.

I haven't actually done any runtime tests yet, I replaced the configuration 
from ppc64el for grub-ieee1275 and adapted them for sparc64. debian-installer
builds fine with those changes, but as I said, I haven't tested anything yet.

I am very welcome for any pointers though for what else is needed to use GRUB
for CD boot on sparc64.
