i've noticed that the hfsplus code was incomplete.

here is the SHORT patch to io/prom/fs/hfsplus.cc which
implements its
open method.

I found it useful because I managed easly to create an
hfs+ blessed
filesystem with a CHRP file pointing to an ELF kernel.

I saw that cdroms using CHRP can boot and I assume they
use HFS or wrapped HFS, but I didn't investigate.

----

the method splits the path in components, and uses
record_init_string_parent to descend the tree and
return a HFSPlusFile
pbject if the search is successful.

---

please accept this patch in the main cvs tree as it
does no harm
and eases the porting of my research OS Acaros to the
ppc platform.
