    Hmm. I don't see anything. However, it's a lot easier to read the
    gcc-generated assembly ("make arch/i386/kernel/vm86.s") than it is to read
    the objdump disassembly.

    It's also a lot easier to see what the assembly language is when giving
    the

    -fno-reorder-blocks

    switch to gcc. Without it, modern gcc's tend to have _way_ too many jumps
    around. But maybe that actually changes the behaviour too.
