This is (as far as I am aware) simply because Xen's current emulation
only expects to emulate instructions which trapped for MMIO or fault

There is no conceptual problem with extending Xen's emulation code, as
we are now expecting to have to emulate instructions which would
otherwise never have hit x86_emulate.
