For jump instructions that does not include target address as direct
operand, use raw value for that. This is needed for certain powerpc
jump instructions that use target address in a register (such as bctr,
btar, ...).

     mtctr  r12
  v  bctr   ffffffffffffca2c
     std    r2,24(r1)
     addis  r12,r2,-1

     ld     r12,32088(r12)
     mtctr  r12
  v  bctr
     std    r2,24(r1)
     addis  r12,r2,-1
