I'd like to suggest solving this in a different way if possible.
Roughly two objections:
Moving coreboot down to 0x4000 is not safe, and we should attempt to fix
it living above 1MB. There are two different ways for doing this:
- Adding an entry to the GDT that allows a real mode segment above 1MB
(Rudolf Marek did that once for resume)
- Copying a stub code to the low 4KB (i.e. 0x600 is safe) for the real
mode calls. util/x86emu/x86.c does that.
Also, adding yet another copy of a GDT seems quite counter productive
since we have about half a dozen already...
