I'm probably doing something wrong by continuing that discussion, but
that kind of things seem really interesting.

Sadly the kind of fixes mentioned before in this thread seems to be a
kind of black magic: I guess that only the vendors know why they're
really needed and what they really do.

_start in src/cpu/x86/16bit/entry16.inc has also some interesting
comments( including one on the cache invalidation).

I came accross all that with my first attempts of my newer fallback
mecanism work (the idea is to make "what's after the ramstage" declare
that the computer booted successfuly).
