libdvdread.plus

I have made some patches to the regular libdvdread library used by many developers. Alas, I have had no luck in getting them accepted into the upstream repository, which has forced me to maintain a second version myself.

Patches include:

* Bring UDF compatibility from base 1.92, to 2.50. This adds Bluray and BD5 ISO format.
* Properly handle UDF chains, instead of assuming they are contiguous, and without gap.
* Move filesizes from 32bit to 64bit.
* Add POSIX style opendir(3), readdir(3) API to add the ability to retrieve contents of ISO files & input-devices.
* Add POSIX style open of non-DVD related files. (Reading playlists, certificates etc)
* Allow API call to set IO handlers. Allowing all IO to libdvdread be developer defined. (Adding RAR support, or FTP perhaps)
