5th Jan 16:30 ef373c0: sdl: clean up audio driver

This prevents a (highly improbable) race condition when exiting, and uses pcm_set_frequency() instead of mixer_set_frequency(), since that seems like the Right Thing to Do (TM).

5th Jan 16:27 beaeb28: duke3d: bump audio sample rate to 22.1KHz

Recent optimizations to sound mixing should allow this, up from 16KHz.

5th Jan 16:25 cf07bb3: duke3d: further optimize audio mixing

Rather than holding intermediate results as fixed-point, this converts them directly to normal integers (in the range of the PCM sample) while mixing, instead of waiting till the end to perform a separate shifting step. Also, this precalculates some constants in the reverb code.
