It still is, even with passing syscall_emu_active parameter. :-) I just needed
something to check to make asmop be the same as ins_name; otherwise the code
thinks we met an illegal instruction.

illegal = ins_name != asmop

IIRC I did it since both evaluate to OP_RFID. But yes, this should be dropped.

You mean ISACaller.__init__, right?

So you mean that we actually got the correct value, it's just that my
expectations were incorrect?

I'm confused. Comment #90 is my comment... :-) You probably meant something
