looks great, cesar - unit test time.  it should be as simple as setting
dut.oper_i.zero_a.eq(1) - or adding an extra argument to op_sim() to
allow that to be set dynamically - then setting a to a non-zero value
and checking that, yes, actually, a is now irrelevant (set to zero).

a more advanced version of the op_sim() test should be not to set
in an ad-hoc fashion: instead to check rd_rel_o bits.

this starts to be very much like the planned LD/ST unit test modifications,
and you could probably use the exact same code for both.

however please do everything in an incremental fashion: no more than 5-10/15
lines at a time when modifying existing code (if that is practical).

so, start with adding the extra argument to op_sim() to allow zero_a to be set

then add a test call in scoreboard_sim op_sim(a=12312313213, zero_a=True, ...)

and so on.
