Code changes

Sunday 14:23 2f71571c0a: Fix faulty Play Shuffled behavior (FS #13347)

When replacing a dynamic playlist with Play Shuffled, the current track could incorrectly be left at the end of the new playlist. Fix this - the current track should always be at the beginning, so it can be skipped past regardless of the repeat/shuffle mode.

Saturday 15:29 2315266628: kernel: remove unused function mutex_test()

No longer needed since the only user was in the Archos code.

Saturday 15:29 dafc8e5904: kernel: remove unused kernel/pthread/*.c files

These don't seem usable and it looks like the files were added by accident by d66346789c "buflib: Check the validity of of handles passed to buflib_get_data() in DEBUG builds."

Saturday 15:05 d20071def0: apps: Add "keep current track when replacing playlist" setting

Add a setting that makes Play and Play Shuffled in the playlist context menu leave the current song (if any) playing when they replace the playlist. Default to on, since this was the behavior of the old "Clear List & Play Next" option.

Saturday 15:05 70087fb9f3: apps: Change playlist context menu behavior, fix FS #13336

Rename the "Clear List & Play" options to simply Play and Play Shuffled, and change their behavior slightly. Previously they would leave the current song playing, but now they will start playing the first song of the new playlist immediately.

Shuffle options are now consistently hidden whenever a single file is selected.

Fixes FS #13336 -- Play Shuffled is now always displayed where applicable, regardless of playback state.
