with many thanks to the microwatt team, for creating microwatt and the
very simple and clear design and unit tests, libresoc's port now passes
17/19 of the mmu.bin unit tests. the two that do not are down to not
yet supporting misaligned LD/ST which needs to be done as two separate
(non-atomic) requests. an exception (0x600) is raised instead at the
moment, which mmu.bin is not designed to cope with.
there is now a high probability that running a microwatt-built linux kernel
and buildroot initramfs will work. this will be the next task on the list.
