well, you know there's EUR 400k of grant money available for us to
give to people who can do tasks.  and before you say "argh i am not
confident or skilled enough", be aware that all of us are in that same
position.  we don't need "Highly Qualified People Wot Have The
Experience" although that would be absolutely fantastic: the thing is
that the approach we're taking is so unusual that *nobody* has the
experience, so *all* of us don't know what we're doing.

what we need is people willing to try anyway, who can go "ok that
didn't work, so let's try something else" and repeat that day after
day, on progressively faster iterative cycles.

right now i have *no idea* how div works - particularly when it comes
to CR0.  action to take? add unit tests that test *specifically* what
CR0 produces when compared against qemu.  that way i get to find out.
