Actually I have the same problem in x86-64
The content of my arch/x86/lib/inat-tables.c:

/* x86 opcode map generated from x86-opcode-map.txt */
/* Do not change this code. */
/* Table: one byte opcode */
/* Escape opcode map array */
const insn_attr_t const *inat_escape_tables[INAT_ESC_MAX + 1][INAT_LPREFIX_MAX + 1] = {
};
/* Group opcode map array */
const insn_attr_t const *inat_group_tables[INAT_GRP_MAX + 1][INAT_LPREFIX_MAX + 1] = {
};

I guess there is a problem with the generation of this file.
