Looks good, thanks.  Some comments below...

Very minor nit, but the comment ought to go directly above the
global_regs assignments, since it doesn't apply when !ISA_HAS_DSP.
I'd prefer:

  /* The SCOUNT and POS fields are global.  */

The new patch doesn't need these macros.

I think we generally mark instruction names like WRDSP as:


(SCOUNT and POS are OK as they are.)

OK with those changes, thanks.
