this bit is fairly easy and involves TestIssuer FSM only.

this one is very intrusive into the Core class because it stops read and write
of registers.

in ISACaller it is relatively straightforward to do this, but hooking into Core
connections to the regfiles requires masking and telling the CompUnits they do
not need to read/write regfiles.
