I've only one thing to say...
branch delay slots ... *shudder*....
in pseudo dave-assembly (a combination of C, VAX/MIPS/x86/ARM asms)
mov 56, r1 # put 56 into r1
br label # branch to label
label: printf r1
guess what r1 is at this stage? 56 taking bets? no it's 57... the increase
instruction gets executed... it still makes my brain violently ill even 2
or 3 years later (and I'm no longer active on Linux/MIPS)...
