By the way, when does this table has to be initialized ? At the moment it is
never initialized by the pc platform but there are some exception handler
initialisation in the stub. 

I guess it should be initialized by Redboot or a simple stub. And in fact is
this not the program that implements the services of the Virtual Vectors
interface that also have to implement this?
