Thread-topic: Sys exception behavior
Soon after "syscall" instruction is executed in the user mode, does the 
processor ensure that it raises an exception with the appropriate exception 
code (sys)  set in Cause register *irrespective* of other high priority 
exception (for example, an interrupt) that may have occurred at that time.

Looking into the source code of scall32-o32.S file, I infer the above. Can 
somebody please confirm the behavior?
