You'd find patches get reviewed quicker if you break them up.. Please
also add 'p' to your diff options.

I'd prefer if you left intel_float_operand as is, and moved the new

This looks wrong too. Please check that something like
does not use a size prefix.

This isn't what 'C' does. Wrong doco is worse than no doco.
