OK, then I'll commit them.  Thanks!

BTW, I hav no success to NetBSD/i386 booting under bochs.
It panics during device autoconfiguration with the message
below while FreeDOS runs well.

bochs: panic, *** io read from vga port 3c3

So I wonder that there are some issue in protected mode
emulation code.  I didn't try FreeBSD nor Linux so far.
