Latest version of the patch is now available, and is hopefully now complete.

Changes are:
o Fixes animated battery for FM when charging
o Fixes battery status debug screen to show charger plugged and charging
o Shows estimated runtime when USB plugged in
o Shows numeric battery level when USB plugged in
o Shows flashing plugged icon when charger inserted when USB plugged in

I have tested this on FM. Hopefully someone can check this on recorder and
player, especially to check I haven't broken anything (either on the
status line, or in the debug battery pages)! I have tested that both these
versions compile cleanly, but i cannot test further than that.

The updated patch is available from

Please report any problems you find.
