    Is it an uncontroversial claim that emulation of CISC instructions
    should perform better than their native execution, followed by an int3
    (as in the simplest working scheme) or boosting (as done by kprobes)?
    From my experience with simulators, "simple" software emulation of
    cpus can be hundreds of times slower or worse than native execution.
