Location: atapio.cpp - why won't you work :(
Hi, while troubleshooting my TSS, I realized there is an error in the description of the access byte for the GDT on:
https://wiki.osdev.org/Global_Descriptor_Table

bit 4 is marked as Always 1 even though it should actually be the bit representing if the memory segment is code/data or TSS.

Hope someone can fix it :)

Cheers!

Fixed!

I hope my edit isn't too bad, I'm not the best at explaining things :P
