I've now moved the fake-tos to a separate source file, so it can be
easier re-assembled now. I also added code that sets up the exception
handlers to terminate Hatari in case of unexpected exceptions.

However, after having a closer look at that "move SR" stuff, I think
that's already too much for the minimalistic fake-TOS. There are easier
ways to work around this problem:

1) We could simply run such code in supervisor mode.

2) We could set the _longframe (0x59e) system variable in the non-TOS
mode. If it's set, test code must use "move ccr,..." and if it's not
set, test code must use "move sr,...".
