Works nicely. Just tested it on my O2. Many thanks!

The first post mentions core=simple which is not fast... Does the dynamic core work on non-x86 systems or is it for x86 only?

It should be much faster since it dynamically recompiles the code instead of intepreting it instruction by instruction like normal/simple...

Instead of setting fixed cycles I'd try cycles=max when the maximum available performance is desired.

The "auto" and the "full" are not available. Just the "simple", the "normal" and the "auto" ones. And there is no noticeabe speed difference (is seems to me that the "simple" gives a slightly better speed).
