[v3 PATCH 04/10] x86/insn-kernel: Add a function to obtain register offset in ModRM

From: Ricardo Neri
Date: Wed Jan 25 2017 - 15:25:39 EST

The function insn_get_reg_offset requires a type to indicate whether
the returned offset is that given by by the ModRM or the SIB byte.
Callers of this function would need the definition of the type struct.
This is not needed. Instead, auxiliary functions can be defined for
this purpose.

When the operand is a register, the emulation code for User-Mode
Instruction Prevention needs to know the offset of the register indicated
in the r/m part of the ModRM byte. Thus, start by adding an auxiliary
function for this purpose.
