Thread-topic: [PATCH] Add instruction fetching function to x86_emulate_ops.
Attached patch introduces a separate function to fetch instruction
bytes, comapared to the read_std. It has the same parameters as the
read_std call, so there's actually no change to the behaviour in the
existing code, but when we introduce x86_emulate.c into QEMU, we will
benefit from knowing that it's instruction bytes being fetched, compared
to regular byte(s)-from-memory fetching.
