code, we should just use .code16 and avoid letting the compiler make any
of the assumptions that the difference affects. Which, in fact, we
already do.

(Once upon a time with ancient versions of gas, we needed to
use .code16gcc because some instructions just wouldn't compile
otherwise. That hasn't been true for a while though.)

It still doesn't actually build with clang after this, but it's a bit
