Yes. There are still some glaring things that show up when you try and
port bits to a 16bit int architecture (like block numbers being int) but
on the whole its pretty code chunks (I'm currently porting the kernel to
the 8086, and quite big chunks of code like most of the yggdrasil bios disk
driver go straight over with tiny fixes).
