Kevin O'Connor69656652009-07-30 20:17:33 -04008 -- hpet, int1589, smbios mem>16GB, mptable on 1 cpu
Kevin O'Connor07750702009-07-13 20:35:38 -04009 * coreboot (r3348): (bochs 20060708)

15 intsrcovr table, different pci irqs, smbios always uses 16
16 cpus, no acpi ssdt, fadt->gpe0_blk set
17 * virtualbox (r13560): (bochs 20061231)
18 -- lots of mouse changes, logo, scsi/etherboot hooks, int 1589,
19 floppy data rate?, int19 calls post

Kevin O'Connorb8aacb02008-03-01 14:56:07 -050026The __call16 code does a long jump to the interrupt trampolines - this
27is unnecessary.
