Some more test cases:

I created a dummy with this code. Changing the number of "Q" macros to 3,
2, or 1 and then patching the microcode back works. When I take them out
entirely, it stops working. This shows that just the reduced microcode size
is not a problem. Something else is, though I can't figure out what yet.
