So, looking at the next patch, that uses this, I see that you'll call
this everytime that jump arrow will be printed, why not do this when
doing the initial disassembly, and having this info cached in the struct
ins or disasm_line (haven't looked closely to provide exact instructions
on how to do it)?

Even more, you could do this model checking just once per disassembly,
then use it as you go reading the disassembly lines, marking them as
fused/not fused and then at jump arror printing just look at a flag, no?
