Aside from the fact that that's a HUGE difference, yeah, they're the
same otherwise, at least within a DXE.

DJGPP and Linux have different object formats (coff vs elf) and symbol
syntaxes (djgpp symbols have underscore prefixes, linux doesn't).  But
the underlying CPU is the same, and the function call details are the
same.
