nowhere. This is the idea behind Eric's linuxbios tables. 

Also IIRC we do have e820 tables in memory: has linux stopped using them? 

Linux used to say: "We don't need no steenking BIOS". With the later 2.4.x 
and 2.6, they seem to be saying "We really need the steenking BIOS". What 
is going on with Linux? They're moving backwards.

We really don't want to support INT type stuff.
