belt slot

Serves as a temprary memory to hold operation results and privide operation arguments. Each belt slot has at least 64bit but usually 128bit and additionally a few metadata bits. A belt slot can hold any width data, even vector data, which is indicated by the metadata flags and initialized on load. Belt slots are accesses via the index of their position on the belt. Whenever new values get dropped on the belt that index gets incremented.
