Code changes

Yesterday 00:37 525eb15864: recording: fix mono mode mixdown functions

Rewrite copy_buffer_mono_* functions for correctness.

Bad pointer arithmetic in copy_buffer_mono_l produced wrong results, or panics on archs which can't handle the unaligned pointer.

None of the functions handled zero size copies properly though this probably wasn't an issue in practice.

Yesterday 00:37 f68c6c14d9: recscreen: clean up menu building code

Remove the use of constants and ifdefs in favor of a single enum and build the menu with a counter. This simplifies the source and optimizes to the same code.

Yesterday 00:37 acc7d16e3b: Fix some hardcoded assumptions in recording.c

There were some hardcoded branches handling left/right gain for line-in or FM radio inputs. If the target only has a microphone, these bits are useless and cause compile errors due to missing audiohw settings, etc. This patch #ifdef's them out.

Yesterday 00:35 8e65f1db55: manual: Document the DAC power mode setting

Make a note of the fact that the M3K DAC's high performance setting is not necessarily the highest quality setting -- see forum post,52917.msg249741.html#msg249741

Yesterday 00:35 d93e054419: fiiom3k: power down amp before switching DAC power modes

As detailed in the <Low Power Mode> section of the AK4376A datasheet, the amp should be powered down before switching power modes (or to a sample rate <= 12 KHz).
