This should be a nop when both registers are the same. Assembling

a: abs $2, $3
b: abs $2, $2

This nop should be deleted. Assuming you tested this the same way I did (by assembling then disassembling) then the nop you saw was padding to round off the section size.

Just a spelling nit: Could you make it obvious that it's a macro in the name? I'm thinking ABSMacro or ABSPseudo.

We ought to tidy up the existing names at some point but that's for another patch.

Could you test 'abs $4, $4' too?
