INT 2C - Cloaking - CALL PROTECTED-MODE PASSALONG CHAIN

Notes:	when this interrupt is invoked in V86 mode, RM386 will invoke the first
	  in a chain of protected-mode handlers, and will only pass execution
	  to the V86-mode INT 2C handler if none of the handlers in the
	  passalong chain handle the call instead.  This is the method by which
	  the real-mode stub of a cloaked application communicates with the
	  protected-mode portion.
	the cloaking host calls the passalong chain with EAX=58494E33h ('WIN3')
	  when MS Windows starts up and with EAX=334E4958h ('3NIW') when
	  Windows shuts down; between these two broadcasts, the additional
	  Windows-only Cloaking services are available
	this function was first introduced with RM386 (RAM-MAN/386) v6.00, the
	  memory manager included in Helix Software's Netroom
