Reverting this seems to "fix" it:
Maybe the special bioses are more sensible regarding MIE clock?

later research shows this MCU uses some "fast Z80" core, possible something like Kawasaki KC80 or ASCII R800.
measured execution rate of NOP instructions in RAM is about 3.19M per second, which gives even less frequency number then converted to "regular Z80" clock - 12.76, however other instruction runs faster than regular Z80 at such clock, so it looks like this CPU core have much different opcode/cycles table.
I'll add more comments about current research results and probably revert mentioned frequency change during this 0.188 dev cycle.
