When I enable icount using an e5500 core I get an exit with “Bad icount read” 
when the guest software executes a load atbu command.

It looks like in qemu/accel/tcg/cpu_exec.c:166 sets can_do_io false when using 
    cpu->can_do_io = !use_icount;
    ret = tcg_qemu_tb_exec(env, tb_ptr);
    cpu->can_do_io = 1;

Since can_do_io is set to false there and the cpu_get_icount_raw() function 
checks that flag qemu/cpus.c:260:
        if (!cpu->can_do_io) {
            fprintf(stderr, "Bad icount read\n");

The load_atbu function will always fail. I commented out the !use_icount and 
set it to a 1 in cpu_exec.c and it continues and seems to run normally, but I 
am not sure what side effects while running icount that could have since it may 
allow actual IO to occur while translation is happening.

I included the stack trace below:
