Look out for license incompatibility issues. Binutils is GPL version 3,
whereas QEMU is GPLv2, so we can't accept code which is GPLv3-only.
If you want to use binutils disassembler code you need to use the
code from the last version of binutils which was GPLv2 licensed.
(The other option is if you happen to be the author of the disassembler
and so are in a position to dual-license it, but that doesn't apply
to you.)
