I contradict myself. Either we need callbacks or we don't. If we get
emulation, we don't need them. Sorry for my confusing note.
Eric, I am sympathy with what you are saying. There is a reality here --
people want VGA and they want it on early. I want to accomodate this.
Is emulation a suitable, architecture-independent way to achieve this?
I'm thinking it might be. Can we then build it in as an option when we
build a linuxbios?
