It breaks aliasing rules if whatever reads the data you write does not
read it as a type compatible with the type you wrote it as. If
reads it as a 32-bit int, a cell, or a character type, it is fine; if
Don't worry about it too much, I'm sure there are hundreds of other
in openbios that do icky things like this. It's in the nature of
