yesterday call with microwatt team, discussed VSX and noted in particular
that glibc6 ppc64le has assumed the ABI requires VSX (SIMD). this is a
major problem for us as it adds around 700 instructions, none of which are
going to be used.

also reorganised the PowerDecoder to do both column and row subsets.  works
really well.

today finished and uploaded the video for OpenPOWER NA 2020 which is on
15th sep.

also did more on dcache.py

if we are to meet the oct 2020 deadline we need to seriously focus and get
the peripheral set done.  litex looks to be the best way to do that however
it means wrapping random bits of verilog in litex / migen.
