Filtering the output of -XX:+PrintAssembly

The choice of hex vs. decimal is buried inside bintuils itself so it's not something we can configure easily.  print_operand_value in opcodes/i386-dis.c seems to control this and all callers request using the hex output.  Changing that code could give you a more readable output though just switching to decimal probably isn't right either.
