appreciated - unless there is a really *really* good reason i am
not going to worry about it.  first reason: breaking up the 24-bits
of SVRM starts to interfere with XO (in other encodings).
second, there is precedent for Rc being in bit 21


 773     Rc (21)
 774         RECORD bit.
 775         0    Do not alter the Condition Register.
 776         1    Set Condition Register Field 6 as described in
 777              Section 2.3.1,     'Condition  Register'     on
 778              page 30.

if the (extremely-limited) XO space of EXT900 is used up we don't get any more.

i'm trying to think of a way to drop svindex, setvl and svshape
(all Unvectorizable) in there whilst allowing svstep (which *is* Vectorizable)
to also not have to be a mandatory 64-bit length.
