FS#12809 - [WIP] New vgm streamed music plugin powered by vgmstream

Hi there,

  this is another WIP plugin that I wrote last year.  It plays videogame streamed music
  using the vgmstream library. Original homepage here:
  I'm a bit new to git so please forgive me for not uploading a proper patch.
  To test the plugin, simply copy the rockstream folder to the plugins folder in
  rockbox sources.  And you have to extract the file in the .rockbox folder.
  The formats.db found in is basically a list with all vgmstream supported
  extensions (at least "all" by the time I wrote the plugin).  You can add  or remove 
  new or unwanted extensions there.  The plugin will only handle the extensions found
  in the formats.db.
  Currently the plugin works as a viewer plugin, and there is only one extension associated
  with the plugin in viewers.config for testing purposes, but you can always use the 
  'open with' option from rockbox.  Once you open a file the plugin will parse all supported
  files found in the same folder.
  The vgmstream project is updated quite often, if someone wants to
  update the core library, I believe that would be very easy, since I only changed a couple
  of things to it.
  I'm not going to work on this anymore, so I decided to upload it here, and hope someone
  can make a proper patch and maybe some dev would be interested in testing it, make 
  the necessary changes and upload an stable release.
  As a last comment, I have only tested the plugin in the simulator, samsungypr0, fuze+
  and ipod nano. It only worked in the simulator and samsungypr0, so hope someone can 
  fix that.
  Please read the README file for some additional info about the plugin.
  Working on:  simulator and samsungypr0

Hi, accidentally posted this task twice. And Category should be daily build I think. Can a moderator delete the other one, please? Thanks.
