Why not just look for the AVX registers by name that are only available if they are correctly detected by the native lldb-server or debugserver? Then we can avoid all of this. If we don't execute any instructions that crash the program, we can stop before any specialized AVX instructions are executed and kill the program is we don't see a register by name?

Bummer to do it so low level if we can delegate this to the compiler though.
