That sounds peculiar.  AFAIK what Atari mode is being emulated
shouldn't affect SDL palette, unless you're starting Hatari itself
with 8 bpp mode (which is deprecated and going to be dropped at
some point).

Do any of these change anything:
- Selecting monocrome monitor instead of color one
- Starting hatari with different values for "--bpp" option (8, 16 and 32)

Mikael hasn't posted the patch for review, so it's hard to say
about its inclusion, but I guess you should get main perf
improvement just by using SDL2 build of Hatari, if it uses
GL backend or you set SDL2 backend yourself to use GL:
	export SDL_RENDER_DRIVER=opengl
