I guess you are right. Since in this case we didn't actually executed the
instruction (exception can also be thought as an execution of an instruction,
since it leads to the exception handler), but in
this case we just fail
and let the userspace do something so we can restart from the same point again.

So I'll go with your suggestion.

Thanks for the review,
