OK, done the testing.
It appears smsw is used in v86 by windows-3.1 and dos4gw
at the very least, and these are the "major" apps. So doing
without a fixup in v86 will not go unnoticed. Unfortunately
this also means that KVM-vm86 should be properly tested.
I have also found a weird program that does SGDT under
v86. This causes "ERROR: SGDT not implemented" under
dosemu, but the prog still works fine as it obviously does
not care about the results. This app can easily be broken
of course, if that makes any sense (likely not).
