FS#7412 - Playlist saving on ipod very slow; can't cancel

Saving a playlist is very slow – possibly because the ipod display gets updated every 10 tracks (and ipod display update is slow). For example, main menu → Create Playlist creates root.m3u8 in just a few seconds (7000 entries) but saving the current playlist takes minutes.

Also, the screen suggests you can press Play/Pause to cancel saving the current playlist. But it doesn’t work, it seems to ignore the keypress - and holding it down simply turns the ipod off..

hopefully even fixed a bit (you can definatly cancel the process now…)

Create Playlist from the filetree (tree.c - add_dir) only refreshes the screen every HZ/4 whereas playlist_save in playlist.c refreshes the screen every #PLAYLIST_DISPLAY_COUNT tracks (which is #defined as 10). Probably, they should both have the same logic - perhaps even shared
