show_registers() tries to dump failing code starting 43 bytes

happens, try to dump code starting at the failing instruction
instead of printing no code at all.

Shouldn't the kernel be printing some info noting that this fallback
is in use then? Or will that be completely obvious and I'm just not
able to see that?
