A good trick which the help output doesn't mention is that % and $ are
special in input, so you can do:

0:mon> di %pc

disassemble instructions at address pointed to by register PC

Other regs are eg: %lr, %r1, %r12.
And it works with di, d and other commands.

Also:

0:mon> di $.xmon_register_spus

disassemble instructions at address of symbol .xmon_register_spus.

cheers
