Friday 19:02 2e99e2175b: playlist: Remove control file cache

Control cache entries cost 24 bytes per command, but cacheable commands are always less than that when written out to the file. We can actually cache *more* data by writing commands directly to the fd (native Rockbox has a 512-byte cache per fd) and it's much simpler.

Friday 19:02 a4cfa8ae6a: playlist: Unconditionally strip bogus dirs in playlist_peek()

The intent behind the check is to only do this if the filename comes from an on-disk file. With the RAM buffer is gone this is now "always" the case.

Friday 19:02 aab6a44fc5: filetree: Remove dead code in ft_build_playlist()

This checks for an out of memory condition when the filenames were buffered in RAM. The playlist no longer buffers anything in RAM so the code is unreachable.

Friday 11:10 1f1893f520: playlist: Remove in-ram filename storage

Use the playlist control file for directory playback instead of storing filenames in RAM. The implementation of that feature is very iffy and probably responsible for random crashes that may occur when skipping through directories rapidly.
