Should work - in the end, you're calling the TurboC functions anyway.

In general, when an interrupt wants a segment:offset, ignore the
segment register and pass a 32-bit pointer in the register.  For
example, instead of es:di, pass edi.  Returns are converted the same
way.  You will not be able to perform interrupts that go32 can't
handle, but when it can't it prints a message to stderr and exits.
