x86 ISA

I kindof think it would be cool to implement a 80386-compatible CPU. It would be more relavent to my interests, even though the ISA isn't nearly as clean as a RISC CPU. Funny thing is, I've only been designing RISC CPUs, so maybe I should take a detour to the dark side of CISC anyways.

I think I will still piece together the requirements and solutions for the superscalar processor; but in the interim, I want to hack together an x86 CPU.

Fun stuff.
