Hmm, OK. But should I split this change from insn decoder change?

OK, and in that case I think we should do this in separated patch from
this change.

Hmm, how we can get the length of those emulate prefixes?
For struct insn, since the size information is important, other
sub fields have "nbyte" field so that caller can find the actual
bytes from original byte stream.

Maybe we can have struct emulate_prefix { .nbyte, .type }; and
define enum etc.. but for me, it seems a bit over engineering.
(since no one use that feature)

Thank you,
