i've started on adding a "second request" mechanism to LoadStore1.
even if this isn't the "source" of the "problem", it will eliminate it from
the diff files (clearly show up an inversion in *hardware* if in fact
it turns out that the 0x600 trap was doing the right thing)

jacob i did like the idea of checking if microwatt has the same error
it's more this:

if two_words = 1 then align_intr should be set unconditionally.
however, the version of loadstore1.vhdl we're following (one which
does not have a complex 3-stage pipeline) does not have two_words,
this was a later addition.
