I don't think __dpmi_simulate_real_mode_interrupt will fit the bill here, 
since this code instructs the DPMI server to copy 6 bytes from the PM 
stack to the RM stack, whereas __dpmi_simulate_real_mode_interrupt 
doesn't support this functionality.

I really don't understand why does this code need to copy data from the 
PM to the RM stack; I've never seen such a need before.  But if it is 
real in this case, our library functions cannot help.
