I'd much rather see you find the other cases and fix them instead of just
taking the approach you've taken.  I'll even help.  i386.md has 7653 lines.

I'll take the first 4k if you take the remainder.  It's not all that hard
since the only ones that can give us trouble are insns with one operand or
no operands if I understood your original message correctly.
