    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).
