That's really funky.

The idt_invalidate() seems to do *exactly* the same thing. It uses
"load_idt()" on an IDT with size 0, and the supplied address.

Can you disassemble your "set_idt()" code vs the "idt_invalidate()"?

No. The code literally seems identical. The only difference is

(a) where the 0 limit comes from

(b) perhaps build flags and whether it is inlined or not due to being
in a different file

and neither of those should matter, but maybe they do.

Which is why I'd like you to actually look at the generated code and
see if you can see any difference..
