Patch to show current recordings status on LCD

This patch allows you to show the status of any current recordings on the LCD.

If you have the "LCD Show Recording Status" option set on the LCD settings page and there are one or more recordings taking place the LCD will alternate between showing the time and displaying recording status. It should work well with both 2 and 4 line displays.

There is also a small change to the priorties so that the "switchToNothing()" does what it is susposed to when there are more than one apps each with an LCD object trying to update the LCD. The one with the focus should call switchToTime() or any other switchToXXX() and the one without the focus should call switchToNothing(). At least thats the theory. It would be better if there was just one LCD instance that all Myth apps could share. Any idea how that could be achieved?

Includes the patch by eskil myth@… in #140 to fix the memory leak.

Thanks for this Paul. I was working on a solution myself but never seemed to have enough time to finish it. I'll take a look at your solution and maybe add some ideas of my own - although on past experience I just can't guarentee that I'll ever have a free moment!
