Given that the top 128k of the bios are mapped below 1M there is a high
chance that jumping from 128k to 256k causes issues, especially as
adding the xhci driver doesn't touch any code path which would actually
be executed on a isapc machine ...

Didn't investigate in detail.  Maybe isapc memory init is different.
