Code changes

Monday 11:04 ce0b31d: Shortcuts, Fix FS #13151 Deleting shortcut removes name, icon, talkclip

FS #13151 - Deleting item from shortcut menu corrupts the menu's display

The function that writes shortcut.txt didn't write existing name, icon or talkclip items

Now: writes all three supplying default values if the items don't exist

Monday 00:36 4055f90: Fix host build for newer linux distros

I realized there was a better way to do this..

Instead of specifying a path just have gcc run the preprocessor (-E) on an input file consisting of only '#include <byteswap.h>' if it succeeds then we can use it if not then don't define OS_USE_BYTESWAP_H

Sunday 11:09 62a5ed4: Fix possible truncation misc.c->output_dyn_value + use Kibytes

output_dyn_value now requires the count for number of units

Binary scale now shows Kibibytes instead of kilobytes (g#1742)

Fixes output for negative values as well

Saturday 16:50 74701a1: Decrease static code size recording.c

Forgot static for recording_step_levels()

There is no need to re-calculate split_time or split_bytes each loop you can't change them within recording screen -- these become constants

We don't need longs to store the conversion of minutes to seconds or MB to bytes these are now shorts and the conversion takes place within rec_timesplit_seconds() and rec_sizesplit_bytes() respectively
