FS#1756 - ID3 tag problem (missing unsynch)

RockBox does not seem to apply the unsynching algorithm
when processing ID3 headers. As a result, MP3s may fail
to correctly display their ID3v2 tags.

I’ve put an example on

id3v2 tag info for rb20031016.mp3:

TLEN (Length): 194000
TYER (Year): 1974
APIC (Attached picture): ()[, 0]: image/jpg, 13383 bytes
TIT2 (Title/songname/content description): An Gabhar Bán
TPE1 (Lead performer(s)/Soloist(s)): Clannad
TALB (Album/Movie/Show title): Clannad 2
COMM (Comments): ()[eng]: Track 1
TCON (Content type): Blues Celtic
TENC (Encoded by): Exact Audio Copy   (Burst mode)
TRCK (Track number/Position in set): 1

To skip the APIC tag, unsynching must be applied
otherwise parsing will get lost, and the remaining tags
will not be found.
