[PATCH v7 07/26] x86/insn-eval: Do not BUG on invalid register type

From: Ricardo Neri
Date: Fri May 05 2017 - 14:20:56 EST

We are not in a critical failure path. The invalid register type is caused
when trying to decode invalid instruction bytes from a user-space program.
Thus, simply print an error message. To prevent this warning from being
abused from user space programs, use the rate-limited variant of printk.
