Since every CPU mode is doing it slightly differently, you could maybe
add a counter to cycles.c and use Cycles_GetCounter() after each
instruction to get the up-to-date cycles count.

Just have a look at the corresponding m68k_run_xx functions. At least
nWaitStateCycles gets cleared before do_specialties is called (because
its value has already been passed to M68000_AddCycles()).
