Another nit... You can rename push_ret_address() and use it here

		src_ptr = ...;
		if (push_ret_address(regs, *src_ptr))
			return false;

		regs->ip += ...;
		return true;

and I think get_push_reg_ptr() should just return "unsigned long", not the
pointer.

And again, please make a separate method for this code. Let me repeat, the
main reason for branch_xol_ops/etc is that we simply can not execute these
insns out-of-line, we have to emulate them. "push" differs, the only reason
why we may want to emulate it is optimization.

Oleg.
