out-of-contest snippet of program code, possibly for some Intel x86
platform, but too short to be easily understood. In that case your 128 would
be a 0x80 byte somewhere in an instruction, and it cannot be interpreted
without knowing at least where the (possibly multibyte) instruction starts.
And anyway once you start unintentionally handling program code as data, all
hell can break loose anytime.
