you mean like this?

        +----> I/O Pad
        +----> I/O Pad
        +----> I/O Pad
        \----> CORONA
                 +----> CORE (aka test_issuer).
                 |      ^
                 |      |
                 |      |
                 \----> jtag

actually it is more like... ahhh... i will have to draw it, it is
to do with how Staf has arranged the IO Pad JTAG testing.

give me a few minutes.

yes, i believe i have semi-worked-out how that works.  copied from
the AM2901 example, which i initially copied for experiments4
