Spec URL:
Description: A library to provide support for making real-mode x86 
calls. On 32-bit x86 hardware, vm86 mode is used. x86 emulation is 
provided on other platforms. This library is primarily used by vbetool 
for reinitialising graphics hardware on resume from suspend.

Needed as part of the vbetool update required for #439256
