* got dec and tb added and tested
* started reorganising PowerDecode to add both row and column subsetting


* bit more on dcache.py (got through it - needs careful review)
* started reorganising PowerDecode2

the reason for the reorg on PowerDecode2 - to be able to "subset" it -
is because when doing a full global decoder it produces a MASSIVE
fan-out of signals, from the original 32 bits, out to a whopping 192
wires to some Function Units *excluding the register data*.

by passing the instruction and partial-decoding the operation again
the number of wires can be drastically reduced.
