Description

Not a joke -- with the presence of KVM, running 16-bit code is actually a possibility (albeit as a guest). Trust me that this seems laughable until you need it -- at which point you desperately need it (namely debugging the BIOS on a virtual image). Fortunately, mdb's architecture and the architecture of the disassembler makes this a snap -- so much so that I consider it a bug that it wasn't originally done and not a feature to add it.
