PPC Qemu does not work with this version of openbios-ppc

Bug Description

I downloaded ubuntu-mate-15.04-desktop-powerpc.iso with the intention of running this under Ubuntu 14.04 x86_64 using qemu-system-ppc.

I found that this never works and all I get is a blank screen.

Here's how I invoke it

qemu-system-ppc -machine mac99 -m 1024 -hda ubuntu15.04_ppc.img -cdrom ubuntu-mate-15.04-desktop-powerpc.iso

Using a newer version of the openbios-ppc I at least get some output in the Qemu window, but none with the default image that Ubuntu 14.04 gives me.
