* Support must be added to bcc/ld86 need to be able to use far pointers.* A file format must be specified that includes relocation tables for far pointers. * A loader stub must be added to the kernel to relocate its own far pointers at boot. * After this is done, support should be added to load userland executables this way too.
I'd like to know what everyone's thoughts are on this. If we do this work, we will be further tying ourselves to bcc. I am seriously considering adding a repository for dev86 to the ELKS project so that we can change the toolchain as needed with more convenience (comments on this are also welcome.) I see that there is an "ELKS format executable" but it appears that it only deals with memory allocation technicalities, so that isn't very helpful.
