For a quick test whether *any* of the chunks of <register> is zero, use
one of these:

	scmple.32 r0, <register>, r1
	scmpli.32 $1, <register>, r1

After that, you can use lsb1/msb1 to find the first/last chunk.
Another option is to tear the chunks apart and test them separately,
e.g. via and, mix/expand or shift instructions, whatever fits your needs.
