This very lightly tested patch updates i386-dis.c from binutils 2.17.
If someone can test it more thoroughly and declare that the patch is
useful and it does not break anything, I may apply it.

Out of curiosity why did you base it on 2.17?  This lacks 50 commits
that were done before the switch to GPLv3.  I can understand one
might feel uncomfortable using a random CVS revision, I would feel
so :)

Can't we just ask the binutils committers after that commit if they'd agree to license their work under GPLv2+, including an explanation why we're having a problem here?

Just wondering - sorry if there already is a discussion going on with these guys that I didn't catch.
