On a second thought while trying to code this, I'd prefer leaving it as is. 
First of all we'll have to increase ctx->idx while adding ctx->offset[0] and 
more importantly, I don't think that's a 'special' case. 
It's still the same thing i.e the start of the 1st instruction (which happens 
to be the end of prologue), the next one will be the start of the second 
instruction etc etc. 

I don't mind changing if you feel strongly about it, but I think it makese sense
