What's up with "err"? You set it to zero, and then you return it, but
nothing can ever set it to non-zero, right?

And here you just write into regs->ax, but your "asm volatile" doesn't
reserve that register. This looks wrong to me.

I think you probably want to add something like an explicit
`"+&a"(err)` output to the asm statements.

Nits: typo ("instrcution"), weird grammar ("and but writes")
