veera: we know that the instructions produce the right answer, they have
been tested against microwatt, etc etc.

therefore, we conclude that your current understanding of cmp
must be wrong.  i suspect you may have missed that for cmp, for
some bizarre reason, they swapped the args as compared to subf.

so to get the results *you* are expecting, it would have to be
cmp cr2, 1, 7, 6 not cmp cr2, 1, 6, 7 

basically this is very much a by-rote task (i apologise), except
when it comes to tests that have random input, in which case you
will need to actually compute the expected results "by hand" (python)

trust that the output is correct, ok? it's good you're reviewing
it though.

get rid of bugs related to CR bit-ordering (MSB0). five frickin
