byuu says:

This is a fairly radical WIP with extreme changes to lots of very
important parts.

The result is a ~7% emulation speedup (with bsnes, unsure how much it
helps higan), but it's quite possible there are regressions. As such, I
would really appreciate testing as many games as possible ... especially
the old finnicky games that had issues with DMA and/or interrupts.

One thing to note is that I removed an edge case test that suppresses
IRQs from firing on the very last dot of every field, which is a
behavior I've verified on real hardware in the past. I feel that the
main interrupt polling function (the hottest portion of the entire
emulator) is not the appropriate place for it, and I should instead
factor it into assignment of NMITIMEN/VTIME/HTIME using the new
io.irqEnable (==virqEnable||hirqEnable) flag. But since I haven't done
that yet ... there's an old IRQ test ROM of mine that'll fail for this
WIP. No commercial games will ever rely on this, so it's fine for
testing.

Changelog:

- sfc/cpu.smp: inlined the global status functions
- sfc/cpu: added readRAM, writeRAM to use a function pointer instead
of a lambda for WRAM access
- sfc/cpu,smp,ppu/counter: updated reset functionality to new style
using class inline initializers
- sfc/cpu: fixed power(false) to invoke the reset vector properly
- sfc/cpu: completely rewrote DMA handling to have per-channel
functions
- sfc/cpu: removed unused joylatch(), io.joypadStrobeLatch
- sfc/cpu: cleaned up io.cpp handlers
- sfc/cpu: simplified interrupt polling code using
nall::boolean::flip(),raise(),lower() functions
- sfc/ppu/counter: cleaned up the class significantly and also
optimized things for efficiency
- sfc/ppu/counter: emulated PAL 1368-clock long scanline when
interlace=1, field=1, vcounter=311
- sfc/smp: factored out the I/O and port handlers to io.cpp
