If the disassembled code contains some reliable "anchor" points - symbols,
labels, specific addresses or similar - perhaps your comments could be held
within a "sed" script (or collection of scripts). Given that the script
will mostly (if not entirely) be used to insert text at particular points,
the sed script would just be a series of

comment line 1 \
comment line 2 \
comment final line

where [address] could be a specific line number or a regular expression
that matches a label or symbol in the code.

I've not seen what the disassembled code looks like, nor how you want to
comment it, so this might be a non-starter of course.
