WARNING: Avoid crashing the kernel - try using WARN_ON & recovery code rather 
than BUG() or BUG_ON()
#211: FILE: arch/x86/lib/insn-eval.c:90:
+               BUG();

And checkpatch is kinda right. We need to warn here, not explode. Oh and
that function returns negative values on error...

Please change that with a patch ontop of the move.

Thanks.
