That's an unfortunate wording in the FAQ that misled you, sorry.  Do
NOT use `int86' for any functions that need a pointer to a buffer,
unless it appears in the list of the supported functions (see the
library reference for that list).  For all others, use `__dpmi_int'.

(Actually, I suggest you to use `__dpmi_int' even for those that
`int86' does support, for reasons that are too long and subtle to
explain.)
