Kevin O'Connor5c4a8c62008-05-12 23:50:16 -040022Look into ways to reduce stack usage. Alter ISRs so that they do not
23enable irqs. Only call out to other bios functions after minimizing
24stack usage.

Kevin O'Connorb8aacb02008-03-01 14:56:07 -050034The __call16 code does a long jump to the interrupt trampolines - this
35is unnecessary.
