INT 1aH services provide access to the system clock.  Also INT 1aH may be
intercepted by a hardware-based MRCI compression system.

The PC BIOS works with a "tick count" of the number of 55ms intervals
which have occurred since the PC was turned on or reset.  The AT BIOS also
provides access to the real-time clock values which are updated constantly
without CPU action, and are stored in the AT's CMOS Memory.

On AT-compatible machines, most short-interval timer/alarm operations are
perfomed via INT 15H.
