http://repo.or.cz/nasm.git/blob/HEAD:/x86/insns.dat

has:

1378 UD0             void                            [       0f ff]                                  186,UNDOC
1379 UD1             void                            [       0f b9]                                  186,UNDOC
1380 UD2B            void                            [       0f b9]                                  186,UNDOC,ND
1381 UD2             void                            [       0f 0b]                                  186
1382 UD2A            void                            [       0f 0b]                                  186,ND

which seems to use the 2 byte version of UD1.

hpa, any input?
