Hi Bernd, why would you want HIMEM to take XMS control
away from FDXMS286 / replace FDXMS286? The simpler way
is to load HIMEM first - if 386 present - and then load
FDXMS286: The latter will fail if either HIMEM loaded
successfully (386 or better CPU) or if a pre-286 CPU is
present. Makes more sense than loading HIMEM second and
making it replace FDXMS286: Replacing a loading FDXMS286
would be easy (ignore loaded driver, replace the handler)
but completely against specs and a waste of RAM (as the
FDXMS286 would stay in RAM without further use).
