Looking at Masami's arch/x86/lib/x86-opcode-map.txt and related code, I
see that the operands to the Jcc and JMP instructions are treated as
immediate values. So insn->immediate.value (which is in the same union
as insn->moffset1.value) is more appropriate, and insn->immediate.nbytes
should get you the correct size. Again, insn_get_length() finishes
parsing the whole instruction as necessary, so insn_get_immediate() gets
called as a side effect.

I'll look at the new patches today.
