    [int13] Zero all possible registers when jumping to a boot sector

    At least one boot sector (the DUET boot sector used for bootstrapping
    EFI from a non-EFI system) fails to initialise the high words of
    registers before using them in calculations, leading to undefined

    Work around such broken boot sectors by explicitly zeroing the
    contents of all registers apart from %cs:%ip and %ss:%sp.
