The segfault was at address 0xb7f59f4a, and the disassembly of
the run_vm86 function is:

0xb7f59f20 <run_vm86+0>: push %ebp
0xb7f59f21 <run_vm86+1>: mov %esp,%ebp
0xb7f59f23 <run_vm86+3>: push %edi
0xb7f59f24 <run_vm86+4>: push %esi
0xb7f59f25 <run_vm86+5>: push %ebx
0xb7f59f26 <run_vm86+6>: call 0xb7f59697 <__i686.get_pc_thunk.bx>
0xb7f59f2b <run_vm86+11>: add $0x18b5,%ebx
0xb7f59f31 <run_vm86+17>: sub $0x3c,%esp
0xb7f59f34 <run_vm86+20>: lea 0x48c(%ebx),%eax
0xb7f59f3a <run_vm86+26>: mov %eax,0xffffffc0(%ebp)
0xb7f59f3d <run_vm86+29>: mov $0x71,%eax
0xb7f59f42 <run_vm86+34>: mov 0xffffffc0(%ebp),%ecx
0xb7f59f45 <run_vm86+37>: push %ebx
0xb7f59f46 <run_vm86+38>: mov %ecx,%ebx
0xb7f59f48 <run_vm86+40>: int $0x80
0xb7f59f4a <run_vm86+42>: pop %ebx
0xb7f59f4b <run_vm86+43>: mov %eax,%edx
0xb7f59f4d <run_vm86+45>: and $0xff,%eax
0xb7f59f52 <run_vm86+50>: cmp $0x2,%eax
0xb7f59f55 <run_vm86+53>: je 0xb7f5a0b5 <run_vm86+405>
0xb7f59f5b <run_vm86+59>: sub $0x1,%eax
0xb7f59f5e <run_vm86+62>: jne 0xb7f5a28a <run_vm86+874>
Hope this helps.
