Yes.  It was fine.  No "CLAIM failed".

The only problem is that is was useless because it could not load any
module without "apple" and "hfs".

I only said "I assume" because there is a subtle difference between a
"valid ELF file" and "indistinguishable for kernel.elf".  It should be
valid and acceptable to the OpenFirmware, and the later is a black box
to me.
