There's a potential hint in src/arch/i386/lib/idt.c:biosint():

        // cases in a good compiler are just as good as your own tables. 
        switch (intnumber) {
        case 0 ... 15:
        case PCIBIOS:
        case MEMSIZE: 
        case 0x15:

It looks like this case construct was done for readability, but in fact 
some kind of interrupt lookup table is needed to handle things
