I'm not sure this could be done (same problem) but, keep this in mind
i have spend good 20 minutes on this, i don't have the solution yet due to
lack of time but i thought this might be interesting for the list.
basicly, i'm simulating a floating point exception (division by zero) and
then grabbing the EIP(pc) from the exception record. PC is the location of
the fdivs instruction since that instruction created the exception
condition so we add 11 on top to make %eax point to the nop instruction.
xor %eax, %eax
mov 0xc(%esp), %eax
add $0xd, %eax
sup mate ? ;)
