The only comment is "I hope this catches 80186 CPU's as well"... I'm 
well aware of the push sp thing and the code uses it.

(FWIW, 80186's *should* be handled correctly by my code.  Not that it 
matters AT ALL for anything but SYSLINUX, since no system exists which 
would be affected otherwise...)
