When a breakpoint is inserted at an instruction, the subsequent instructions
are erroneously decoded by LLDB. Possible reason could be that while decoding
instructions (when a breakpoint is also inserted), LLDB should substitute the
complete original instruction before decoding. Instead the dissassembly is
decoded correctly till the breakpoint instruction but since the breakpoint
instruction is basically modifying 1 byte of an already existing instruction,
LLDB interprets the rest of the bytes as new instructions.

Disassembly by GDB

   0x0000000000400922 <+0>:    push   %rbp
   0x0000000000400923 <+1>:    mov    %rsp,%rbp

Corresponding Disassembly by LLDB

    0x400922 <+0>:  pushq  %rbp
    0x400923 <+1>:  movq   %rsp, %rbp
    0x400926 <+4>:  subq   $0x30, %rsp

    0x400931 <+15>: movl   %edx, -0x20(%rbp)
    0x400934 <+18>: movl   %ecx, -0x24(%rbp)

    0x400938 <+22>: inb    $0x3b, %al
    0x40093b <+25>: loopne 0x4009bc                  ; <+154> at test.cpp:34
    0x40093e <+28>: orb    $-0x39, %al
    0x400940 <+30>: clc    

As it can be seen in the disassembly by LLDB, after breakpoint at <+21> the
instructions are not correctly decoded.

Steps to reproduce
1) Compile attached source with g++ (with -g option)
2) Start debugging with LLDB
3) Insert breakpoint at binary_search (b binary_search)
4) Execute command "disassemble"
