openbsd running on the new imac

openbsd running on the new imac

openbsd-current amd64, nv driver (git code and some tweaks needed to recognize the new pci id) at 1920x1080, wireless works (despite the initial timeout), bluetooth keyboard and mouse come through as usb devices from efi

unfortunately the disk drives come through as wd since the efi bumps the ahci controller down to compatibility mode. a patch to grub can enable native ahci for linux and windows, i am looking into adding the code to openbsd's own biosboot.
