How did you start to save your register ? You need a target address that you 
must first put in a register to save your registers, so you always lost at 
least one register... Puting the PC in the SR is not needed. If you want it, 
use loopentry. If you want to modify it use jmp. No need to complexify the SR 
unit for something like that.

That's not the problem, the problem is how did you preserve all your
registers ?
