the problem is that in Thumb most commands don't work with r8-r15
because there are only three bits used to encode them. This is
unfortunate as the other registers are not banked for FIQ.

The best possibility I see is to save some unbanked registers to the
banked registers on entry and restore them on exception exit.

Best regards
