Maybe something like this would work (totally untested):

        lidtl (BUILD_BIOS_ADDR + pmode_IDT_info)
        lgdtl (BUILD_BIOS_ADDR + rombios32_gdt_48)
        ljmpl $PROTECTED_MODE_CS, $1f
        pushl %ebp
        movl %esp, %ebp
        movl $BUILD_STACK_ADDR, %esp
        calll (_code32__init - BUILD_BIOS_ADDR)
        movl %ebp, %esp
        popl %ebp

Of course, this would return to coreboot using the SeaBIOS gdt/idt,
but coreboot could probably restore it's gdt/idt fairly easily (if it
cared at all).
