Maybe emulator_recalc_and_set_mode()? It took me a second to understand that
"update" also involves determining the "new" mode, e.g. I was trying to figure
out where @mode was :-)

If we hit this, is there any hope of X86EMUL_UNHANDLEABLE doing the right thing?
Ah, SMM and the ability to swizzle SMRAM state. Bummer. I was hoping we could
just bug the VM.
