Not related to Genode , but my main issue is that the instruction
table *was* a static 2d array.. Hard to change base address of that
So I have now converted the whole thing to use a pointer , which is
allocated using the Genode API. It doesn't work, getting exec faults
from ram. But I will get there.

Just one more related question. Can exec fault reported by Genode mean
a invalid instruction or is it just that it can't exec it?
