Sure, mode 7 in general is mentioned, but it does not mention that the
FASTLOAD flag is ignored here, i.e. this Pexec call does not clear the
memory if the FASTLOAD flag is not set.

Another thing that I noticed in TOSHYP: the p_flags field is not
documented in the BASEPAGE / PD structure. Both EmuTOS and MiNT have it
at offset 40, so I assume this is also the official offset that was
used by later TOS versions. TOSHYP only says "p_resrvd0" here.

Pexec(7) is not mentioned in my version of the Compendium. But there
might be multiple versions available, so maybe I have not the latest
