Return from Subroutine
Return fromsubroutine will branch to the location speciﬁed by the contents of rA plus the
IMM ﬁeld, sign-extended to 32 bits.
This instruction always has a delay slot. The instruction following the RTSD is always
executed before the branch target.
PC ← (rA) + sext(IMM)
allow following instruction to complete execution
Convention is to use general purpose register r15 as rA.
A delay slot must not be used by the following: IMM, branch, or break instructions. This
also applies to instructions causing recoverable exceptions (e.g. unalignement), when
hardware exceptions are enabled. Interrupts and external hardware breaks are deferred
until after the delay slot branch has been completed.
