Subject[patch 05/17] get_cycles() : MIPS HAVE_GET_CYCLES_32
partly reverts commit efb9ca08b5a2374b29938cdcab417ce4feb14b54. Selects
HAVE_GET_CYCLES_32 only on CPUs where it is safe to use it.

Currently consider the "_WORKAROUND" cases for 4000 and 4400 to be unsafe, but
should probably add other sub-architecture to the blacklist.

Do not define HAVE_GET_CYCLES because MIPS does not provide 64-bit tsc (only
32-bits).
