FS#13367 - Allow disabling headphone remote button in settings

I’m using Rockbox (build from 2022-05-03) with xDuoo X3ii.

The device supports controlling playback with a button press on the headphones.

This is behavior currently enabled with a define (USE_REMOTE) during the build process, and for now, it’s only supported by the xDuoo target.

I would really prefer if this was a setting, as I find it sometimes doesn’t behave as expected, and if I wish to turn it off I have to rebuild rockbox.

Here are the issues I’m having, which may be related to faulty headphones, but might also be related to some error-correction that the native firmware does, and Rockbox doesn’t.

I found that these behaviors can cause Rockbox to think there was a remote button press:
1) Pulling the jack in and out of the player (the rockbox setting to pause/resume playback when the jack is removed/connected is DISABLED).
2) Sometimes moving the headphones wire triggers a button click.
