So we free 2 bits in RM (thus for each instruction) and move these two into
SVSTATE (thus global). Before doing this, few questions:
1. Do we have use for two bits freed in RM? Perhaps some specifiers can be
2. Do we have a real need in vec2/vec3/vec4 at all? If it can be emulated and
emulation is cheap and/or this is a rarely used functionality, I'd simply drop

Dropping vec from binutils and insndb is a relatively straightforward task; I
wouldn't say the same words about adding anything there.
