instruction set it is used with.  I encourage you to have at least a skim
over the most recent set of MIPS architecture manuals publicly available
where it all is documented.


Look into
(registration required). Read sections 4.13, 4.12 and 9.13-9.15.
Ignore anything for 64bit core.

Sorry, I asked David Lau to update MIPS32 actual docs but it can take time.
Right now it is from 2011 year.
