In the current implementation, there is a common shift count for all
chunks, taken from the least significant 3...6 bits.

The syntax should be:

	shiftxy shift_count, source, destination

where shift_count may be a register or an immediate operand.
That is, r3 is the shift count, and the contents of r2 are shifted and
the result placed into r1.
