Well, the INT 15h call would still be on the BIOS side; that doesn't
sound like an EFI thing at all. Perhaps that's a special-case hack to
make their platform *trigger* the SMM entry, which then gets handled by
the EFI code?

True. I suppose the question is whether it's true of any versions of DOS
that we *care* about. Or other operating systems that we might want to
use on Quark, I suppose. Your response seems to suggest not.

I just didn't want to design myself into a corner where I'd *never* be
able to fix this "known bug"?
