In the case of the A20, I'm not sure how I want to implement it. It is not that bad to use syslinux code, because we have our own alternative. However, this code is very critical, and I prefer writing our own code. After all, my opinion looks like the same as Marco. :p

Yes this code is critical, as you see flaws in this code makes grub unusable on new PCs (freeze without *any* error message). Since it's the most critical part of grub, why simply not use the most stable code available for A20 handling: the linux kernel ?

Moreover, IMHO, it makes no sense trying to rewrite such low level functions, since there are not hundreds ways of writing it !
