Test version before next beta: (QEMU stuff is unchanged)

GUI has (stupidly) named "Stopped M68K CPU idle mode" slider. This selects between 3 modes when only PPC CPU is active.

Leftmost: busy loop (like in previous beta), main thread uses 100% CPU all the time.
Middle: partial sleep
Right: Even more sleep

Middle/Right should reduce main thread CPU usage to less than 5% and possibly allows PPC-only emulation with single core CPU. EDIT: Please test even if you have multi-core CPU, reduced heat output and energy usage is also nice goal.

May cause other side-effects, report any weirdness (compared to b16) before beta is released, thanks.
