Sorry, I forgot to load EmuTOS symbols to the debugger,
latest EmuTOS 512k snapshot releases have them in Hatari
compatible format.

Attached output has also EmuTOS function names, from
that one can see which EmuTOS functions are still working
while the game appears frozen.

Based on how many times the first instructions of the functions
are called, int_acia() gets called a lot more than any other
EmuTOS function.

The code in question is from assembly file bios/aciavecs.S
which has quite a bit of ifdefs, so profiler output might
actually be easier to parse although it's lacking the local
symbols used in the assembly code:

Comments in that file indicate that EmuTOS implementation
differs quite a lot from normal TOS...
