This is just removing some code in WebKit tree. Basically there is no
Currently, MIPS and ARM use capstone disassembler. If we can use this for
ARMv7, it simplifies the implementation.
I don't want to use capstone for X86, X86_64, and ARM64 right now since
these instruction sets are really changing: new instructions are added
So I would like to have our own ones in the tree. But for MIPS, ARM and
ARMv7, instruction sets are not so changed in terms of our JIT.
