x86 32-bit segmentation.

Unfortunately those are limited to i386. With some care we could use
them on x86_64 (temporarily switch the address space to include the
"bytecode" and its data at the lower 4G, execute a far call to the
bytecode, etc.

It's cumbersome though, and will make context switches to the bytecode
quite slow.

I have a truly marvellous patch that fixes the bug which this
signature is too narrow to contain.
