Description davidx 2002-04-28 10:40:01 UTC
	vm86 calling and bios16 calling are sharing same physical page vm86phystk as 
	their stack, while vm86 code was already locked down, the 16 bits protected mode 
        bios calling can still escape from vm86 lock, and bios service itself may also
	not reentranable.

David, is this PR still relevant?

Comment 5 Oleksandr Tymoshenko freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2019-01-25 18:51:32 UTC
David is not working on this patch and doesn't know whether it's still relevant. Closing as OBE. Feel free to reopen if you think the issue is still valid in recent version of FreeBSD
