Great work! I've tested some few demos, and all were working as good as
with the old core, including the MMU demo X-Tasie.

I just noticed one regression: In 68060 mode, TOS does not start
anymore. But I think that's ok, because the new WinUAE core emulates
the 68060 more accurately now, so we likely need to provide some TOS
patches for running in 68060 mode now (AFAIK, the Centurbo 060 also
needs some TOS patches to get it ready for the 68060, doesn't it?)
