A simple speed meter which has served me for quite some time
now. Allows to tune cycles very reliably to the maximum
possible, while having no impact on performance (unlike some
other patches in that area).

Remove it if you don't like it, it's just a small thing.

    New version: titlebar display.

    A few additional notes:

    It doesn't show CPU utilization, but it shows how far dosbox is behind "real time". Maximum is 100%, lower means overcycled. As long as it displays 100%, all is well. Most of the time, you can overcycle to 90%, only then sound begins to stutter. The display is updated every 16 seconds to have low CPU impact.

    It can easily be integrated with the timesync patch, of course it only makes sense while timesync is off.
