Probably insn_get_seg_base() itself can verify if there are segment
override prefixes in the struct insn. If yes, use them except for
specific cases such as CS.

On an unrelated note, I still have the problem of using DS vs ES for
string instructions. Perhaps instead of a use_default_seg flag, a
string_instruction flag that indicates how to determine the default

Thanks and BR,
