Can you explain what was wrong with the function this patch changes, and how the patch fixes that problem? The patch looks kludgy to me (as far as I understand) -- apparently trying to differentiate between real-mode and protected-mode segments? Why is that needed? Shouldn't you be looking at the execution mode of the caller (e.g., EFLAGS.VM)?
