still TODO.  should be easy now that the SVSHAPEs are independent from

done, very simple, stores its immediates into the SVREMAP SPR:

the principle here is:

* there are 5 registers - 3 input ([F]RA, [F]RB, [F]RC) 2 output
* there are 4 SVSHAPEs (0-3)
* REMAP is a dead-simple table "FRA uses SVSHAPEn, FRB uses SVSHAPEm ..."

that's now implemented and the unit tests for FFT and Matrix-Mul updated.

the next important step will be to check that temporary (scalar)
registers can be
used in a full complex FFT, with the "REMAPped" vector registers not needing
too many "remap" instructions.
