[PATCH] ff/rewind acceleration

Here is a patch against the current CVS which adds an acceleration
option for ff/rewind. This greatly speeds up seeking through long
files while still letting you seek slowly forward or back a few seconds.
With the option enabled, after holding down the LEFT or RIGHT button for
3 seconds (by default), the ff/rewind step size will double. It doubles
again every 3 seconds thereafter. The option can be enabled or disabled
in the settings menu.
I didn't implement it, but to save a byte in the RTC, we should probably
combine the ff_rewind and ff_rewind_accel bytes into one byte. With
acceleration, an ff/rewind step size above, say, 15 seconds seems pretty
useless to me. I'll add this if this patch gets committed to CVS.
