I looked at the x86emu but int.c only contains PCI services
and some other little functions. This is pretty much like what
we have now in LinuxBIOS for VGA BIOS support.

What I found really interesting in that source tree is
the 'happy_cards' file, which tells what various VGA BIOS's 
do, and what the author had to do to make them happy.
