Since you're making it a fatal error, before doing much of anything
else, you might at well fail decode and keep it all in the x86/decode.c
file, no need to spread this 'knowledge' any further.

There's no actual state associated with it, you just want to avoid the
instruction being present.

Much simpler patch too.
