And it was:

        .word   gdt_limit       /* the table limit */
        .long   gdt             /* we know the offset */

And gdt_limit got rid of the problem.
And it is all defined in:

This is from my break up of linuxbios into two seperately compiled
pieces so I could use upx on the code that runs from ram.

There are some issues with all of the ports working if I merged it as
is so I was delaying merging that bit.

I believe if I make the compression optional I can get around
