In Ethereal, dissectors register themselves in dissector tables, rather
than the dissector that creates the dissector table registering other
protocols.  The "tali.opcode" registrations should be added to the MTP3,
SCCP, ISUP, and SAAL dissectors.

(Yes, either one would work, but it's generally cleaner to have each
dissector register itself in the typically small number of dissector
tables it needs to be registered in, rather than having the dissector
with the table know about all the protocols that Ethereal supports.)
