A long time ago these questions were being asked about accessing the
PPC/U-Boot environment variables from Linux I would be very interested in
any code to do this even partly working code and I would be happy to
complete the code / debug the code.

Was this work ever completed and if so:
A. Where can I find it.
B. Would some kind person mind sending me the code to finish / use

We are using a patch for the MTD code that provides access to the
ppcboot environment both from the user space as well as from the
kernel space. The user space part is implemented using the proc
filesystem. Let me know if you're interested.
