yes, although it spews additional debug output at the moment.  let us instead
go with "soc/simple/issuer_verilog.py filename.v"

these should be exactly as in Minerva: i really did copy the code as-is (except
to make it 64 bit)

hmm however it seems i have some additional signals that get it "going".  a
sort-of debug interface, these are, mandatory:

* go_insn_i

these are optional:

* pc_i
* pc_i_ok
* core_start_i
* core_stop_i
* core_bigendian_i
* halted_o
* busy_o

line 40 is where the unit test is added to the list of binaries to run.

line 89 shows how to kick it out of "halted"

lines at 119 show how to set the pc externally.  it defaults to zero including
after reset so this is not strictly necessary.

lines at 124 show how to kick it into running instructions.  go_insn_i setting
to 1 is mandatory

when we have a "proper" debug interface (JTAG, other) this will be a little

if you can help get us started i can send you patches.
