The stomping problem is still there in that case. If there's any stack,
it can be stomped on by the code executed from the option ROM.
I can see two ways out, both not really nice:
- checksum all important code and data, then compare the result
- reload all code, checksum only the data
- reload all code, preserve no data (which would include BIOS tables)
