Hi all,

Perhaps you already noticed. There are efforts to resurrect true 16-bit only x86
GCC port [1][2]. I added it coreboot cross toolchain script.


You can compile it ./buildgcc  -j4 -p ia16-elf

So far, I only tried to compile some simple programs, but I believe it could be
handy for SeaBIOS 16-bit code, which could be true 16-bit.

Or, if someone ever does SeaBIOS port to xi8088 board [3] which uses 8088 or NEC v20
