Software: joystick positions from receiver pulses

Net result: we have two eight-bit numbers representing the two axes of the joystick. The ISR about sixty words long.

1/2 of actual code from ISR, with comments:

	btfss	pir1, ccp1if	; CCP1?
	  goto	isr_check_ccp2

	btfss	ccp1con, ccp1m0
	 goto	isr_ccp1_falling
	movf	ccpr1l, w
	movwf	ccp1_rise_l
	movf	ccpr1h, w
	movwf	ccp1_rise_h
	bcf	ccp1con, ccp1m0	; now waiting for falling edge
	bcf	pir1, ccp1if	; Clear interrupt flag
	goto	isr_check_ccp2

	; CCP1CON has CCP1M0 == 0, we're waiting for falling edge
	movf	ccp1_rise_l, w
	subwf	ccpr1l, f
	movf	ccp1_rise_h, w
	btfss	status, c
	incfsz	ccp1_rise_h, w
	subwf	ccpr1h, f

	; ccpr1h/l now has the delta.  TMR1 is 8:1 scaled
	; on our 1uS instruction cycle, so 1mS is about
	; 0x7d and 2mS is about 0xfa.
	; We will subtract 0x60 from this to give
	; a range of 0x1d - 0x9a for joystick_x
	; we then shift right (divide by two) for a final range of
	; 0x0e..0x4d (14..77).

	movlw	0x60
	subwf	ccpr1l, w	; ccpr1l = ccpr1l-0x60
	movwf	joystick_x
	bcf	status, c
	rrf	joystick_x, f

	bsf	isr_status, isr_got_x	

	bsf	ccp1con, ccp1m0	; now waiting for rising edge
	bcf	pir1, ccp1if	; Clear interrupt flag
	; fall through so we check the other ccp
