XCHG destination,source

Logic:    destination <--> source

XCHG switches the contents of its operands, which may be either bytes
or words.

                                                                          
Operands                  Clocks   Transfers  Bytes   Example
                        byte(word)
accumulator, reg16          3          -        1     XCHG AX,SI
memory, register       17(25) + EA     2       2-4    LOCK XCHG SEMPHOR, DX
register, register          4          -        2     XCHG CL,DL
                                                                          

Notes:         Used in conjunction with the LOCK prefix, this
instruction is particularly useful when implementing
semaphores to control shared resources.
