the epic saga continues.

sv.setvl is not practical.  it is a 64-bit encoding embedded into
a Vector Loop encoding and that is prohibited.  we need an *EXT001*
encoding **not** an sv.xxx encoding.

in the meantime (sigh) i will add an "svmgmt" instruction which
temporarily focusses on a pack/unpack argument.

potentially it could be a 10-bit XO because there are fewer bits in
