this patch removes some code dealing with reloading the random seed from the global_status which I'm fairly certain was dead code...

in my quick testing with this patch with shuffling both with the menu option and in the quickscreen I can resume the playlist as it was correctly.

this patch also reclaims 4 bytes from the hwcodec nvram targets (and will invalidate your current playlist resume info)
This task depends upon

Hm, yes, it does look like actually comes from the playlist_control file, using the PLAYLIST_COMMAND_SHUFFLE command... If so, it should be safe to remove.
