What justification does LLVM have for instering the prefixes
inside a .code16 section?
        data32 addr32 lgdt    (gdt_desc)
Nothing tells if the format of the descriptor - and it changes
between true 16bit mode and 32bit mode (which we want).

I'm not sure the addr32 is needed - since it is the operand size
that controls whether a 24 or 32 bit base is loaded.

I've certainly used lidt in real mode just to move the vector
table to a safe address (the 286 ice didn't like it).
