Code changes

Yesterday 19:33 ce3da6238f: rbutil: Fix linking zlib on Windows.

With Qt4 zlib was linked implicitly (and explicitly linking it caused errors). This was a Qt issue that has been resolved with (at least current) Qt5, now we need to explicitly link zlib on native Windows.

Yesterday 19:33 1801dcc999: rbutil: Fix native Windows build for tools.

- When make on Windows finds sh.exe it will try to use that. We use cmd.exe calls when detecting Windows, so make sure we use cmd.exe as shell.
- Add missing Windows compatibility to tomcrypt Makefile.

Yesterday 13:24 884d8922e3: hosted: Allow ALSA driver to switch output device at runtime

* Allow output device name to be specified
* Set hw/swparams prior to actual playback start, not at init
* If told to open a new device, cleanly close down old one.
