The problem was that the playback stopped after a second or so when
filling the buffer the first time. I think that was because some data
wasn't bitswapped at the time it was given to the MP3 decoder.

1. read x kb
2. bitswap x kb
3. start playback
4. fill complete buffer
5. start bitswapping the rest of the buffer

And because 4. takes longer with 8MB, 5. was started later and
playback was too early at the point of x kb in the buffer.

It should work also with changing the "x" value above and I don't say
that the changes of my patch are the best way to make 8MB work. Gerald
had this patch and it worked for me and all other tries to change
values that changed the buffer behaviour didn't.

So if you or anyone else tells me what I should test, I can do it. But
I cannot guess this, I don't know enough about the buffering. Maybe
Linus can say something about this?

Bye, Uwe.
