There is some limited amount of information about DPLL (USPTO 4,780,844) and overall Paula architecture (USPTO 4,829,473) - but probably there is lot more than this.
Yes, Mike is a bit nutty when it comes to direct comparisons to the hardware, shaving chips, x-raying dies, etc.
There are a LOT of details that I discovered about Paula that are well beyond the patent descriptions, and the code above will not emulate Paula fully. You are missing several key elements, and will be missing more when you add the writing support. The DMA integration is one of the biggest problems, and there is of course the GCR module that everyone misses.
