Yeah, it should help with that.  The patches make READ_SP available to
microMIPS as a side-effect, but the other cases should be fair game too.
It'd be good not to eat all the new bits at once though :-)

I went ahead and applied the patches tonight since they seem to have been
stable locally.

The new approach is to refer to operands by number rather than name,
so it should just be a case of adding RD_4 to the ALNV.PS list.
That's preapproved if it works.
