[Qemu-devel] [PATCH] Make -kernel for linux work with bochsbios

While trying to run -kernel with -bios pc-bios/pcbios.bin, I realized
that I was actually writing data to %es, but only set up %ds to a 32-bit
segment we want to write to.

So at the end of the day the data hasn't actually been copied. Oops.

So here's a fix to set ES instead of DS, which makes -kernel work with
BOCHS bios again (and actually makes the code do the correct thing)!
