Reicast performance deteriorates on Android 8 and 9.

Hi. My phone is ONEPLUS 3T, with Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 and 6G RAM. I believe it is powerful enough to run DC games in full speed. In Android 7, Reicast performance is really good. The Play Store bulid has some graphical glitches on some 3D games such as Cannon Spike. But the games runs in full speed without frame skip. When I use some debug builds such as debug-f454c79, everything is fine. But after I flashed my phone with Android 8 and 9, I cannot get a good performance no matter how many builds I have tried. Either I can see obvious frame skip, or the sound is often discontinuous. Strangely the RetroArch with Reicast core has almost perfect performance on Android 8 and 9 when running DC games. I also have a Redmi Note 7 with Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 and 6G RAM. And both Reicast and RetroArch are running smoothly on MIUI Android 9. Hope the performance issue can be fixed in next stable bulid. Thank you very much.
