The main issue with that approach is that it may result in reproducing
translate bugs in the disassembler, and I am sure the target I am
familiar with has such bugs.
On the other hand if one uses translate to write a disassembler and
does an exhaustive disassembly and compares the result with
objdump output then both qemu and binutils (which also contains
holes for the ARM target, at least last time I checked) will benefit.
