INT 21 - DOS 2+ internal - GET CURRENT PROCESS ID (GET PSP ADDRESS)

	AH = 51h
Return: BX = segment of PSP for current process
Notes:	DOS uses the current PSP address to determine which processes own files
	  and memory; it corresponds to process identifiers used by other OSs
	under DOS 2.x, this function cannot be invoked inside an INT 28h
	  handler without setting the Critical Error flag
	under DOS 3.0+, this function does not use any of the DOS-internal
	  stacks and may thus be called at any time, even during another
	  INT 21h call
	supported by OS/2 compatibility box
	identical to the documented AH=62h
	this call was undocumented prior to the release of DOS 5.0
