Hm, ROM-BIOS target, interesting :) Does it produce a complete ISA/PCI ROM module with necessary headers or just a code that can run from ROM? Coreboot project used its ROMC that enable you to write a bootblock in C because it doesn't require any RAM/stack (it's necessary before MCH is initialized). All vars are allocated in registers. So this makes of course several limitations but avoid asm...

DOS gives me freedom to unlimited HW access.
