Hi, time for a little challenge.
Not for anything big, time is too often limited for many of us - even though i'd clearly could find a few cases.

It's about doing the work of an instruction that...

I meant that other interrupt sources will have to do the same kind of work.
For example, i need to generate a vblank interrupt and that's not int1 but it still needs to trigger the change in the vm.
