OK, with no modification of what I have already, I just created this
handler:

static int
kvm_emulate_insn_handler(struct trace_seq *s, struct record *record,
struct event_format *event, void *context)
{
struct format_field *field;
unsigned char *data = record->data;
int i;
field = pevent_find_field(event, "insn");
if (!field) {
trace_seq_puts(s, "Can't find inst field");
return 0;
}
trace_seq_puts(s, "insn: ");
for (i = 0; i < field->size; i++) {
trace_seq_printf(s, "%s%02x",
i ? "," : "",
data[field->offset + i]);
}
return 0;
}

I think this is what you would want, right?
