FS#10403 - Random Folder Advance playlist generation

This patch adds a “Play Shuffled” menu item to random_folder_advance_config, which adds all configured configured directories to the current playlist in random order (tracks within a directory remain in “normal” order)

It somewhat works:
- Sometimes a proper playlist control file is generated, and “resume playback” will start this big random-folder playlist
- Sometimes the player freezes after exiting the plugin
- Sometimes “resume playback” complains about a corrupt playlist control file
- In the cases where it works, the previous playlist isn’t always cleared, and playback doesn’t start at the beginning.

Further help is welcome :)

looks ok… my main suggestion would be to create a new .m3u(8) instead of using the “current” playlist.
(going by memory here…)
shouldnt you do playlist_new() or_create() or whatever its called instead of remove_all_tracks()? also you arn’t stopping playback.. and thikning baout all that, all those “someetimes” make sense. depends on what playlist_remove_all_tracks(NULL) does it might very well leave you with a busted control file and/or resume info in global_status.

This one seems to actually work properly. It immediately starts playback, and exits the plugin (which seems like the safe thing to do, since starting playback will re-grab the audio buffer so what the plugin thinks is in there will bve wrong).

The new menu item is now also documented in the manual.

looks good
