Ok, I changed to using Cycles_GetCounter(CYCLES_COUNTER_CPU) [1] in
profiler.  As it works for old UAE core and the default WinUAE CPU core
function, I think it's the best option.    Now one can get both
cycle counts and i-cache misses with the profiler.

[1] It returning bogus values instead of zeros on "non-supported"
    core variants is a bit annoying though.

Agree.  Cycles_GetCounter() doesn't seem to work for MMU version
either, could that be fixed at some point?

Btw. What about the DSP_Run() call which didn't have "*2" in it,
should that be fixed?  It was in the old UAE core non-prefetch
variant (m68k_run_2()).
