My bad, I only looked in the thumb ref card. So that's an ARM 
instruction... I'm compiling with -mthumb. I left away all the 
thumb-interwork flags, since I don't need to integrate any ARM code 
libs. Could that be a problem?

Otherwise, I would probably have to switch to ARM mode before the mrc. 
I'm gonna try that.
