Dynamically allocating a new structure within the DisasContext can
potentially leak as we can longjmp out of the translation loop (see
test_phys_mem). The proper fix would be to use static allocation
within the DisasContext but as the Xtensa translator imports it's code
from elsewhere I leave that as an exercise for the maintainer.
