FS#6216 - Update so MP3 files are only opened once

Currently MP3 files are opened twice when played - once for playback and seperately for ID3 parsing.
This small patch adds an interface so the playback file handle can be used for ID3 parsing too.

Committed with the corrections.

Here’s a slightly updated version - this reverses the return from get_mp3_metadata to bring it into line with other formats (true=success, false=error).

Looks good, but the check in the new function if file open failed must be: if (fd < 0) … not if (fd == -1). Probably it should return also false.

OK, will update the test. mp3info() actually returns true to indicate an error, so I think that bit is correct.

You don’t think that there’s a potential problem with the same file seek position being used for both metadata and playback buffering? I assume not, or this would be a problem for other formats…
