This patch will make the albumart code look for albumart in the absolute path ROCKBOX_DIR/albumart/<artist>-<album><size>.bmp in addition to the current (relative) locations.

This means you can store your albumart independently of your music files.

It also adds a sanity check to fix_path_part (abort if null is encountered).
This task depends upon

rasher, is it possible to make the albumart code to search for other strings such as Folder.bmp or AlbumArt.bmp?
I'm asking this since most of the JPEG files that are shown as Album Art in Sansa at least (could be the others also) use this naming convention.

This would eliminate the need to rename the files to cover.bmp or other names.
