That table is a bit large, at least for the branch instructions. None of the
branches except for bclr(l) need to read LR, only write to it. And bclr doesn't
need to read TAR, so multiplexing TAR/LR on the same port would be possible.

It is, it's SPR #8

what are the opcodes starting with op_sc? I don't see any of them in the
power_enums list, nor do I see corresponding opcodes in the power ISA
