Add line-in audio support.

Todd Giles
repo owner created an issue

The idea here is to add a mode that takes USB soundcard line-in audio, does the FFT in realtime, and controls the lights based upon the audio coming in live. Changes that will need to be made include at least:

(1) Support for line-in audio (see http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?p=314087#p314087 for sample code doing just that)

(2) Possibly adding back in some sort of floating average / std.dev. calculation that takes the last 10 seconds of audio into account (or 30s?) ... as currently the code calculates the average / std.dev. of each channel after the initial playback using the entire song. This floating average may be useful anyhow for initial playback of songs.

    Initial work done and in the master branch. Still need to add audio-out support while in audio-in mode for those cases where you want to simply daisy-chain your audio-in to the pi, then take the audio back out to speakers, or to be able to have audio-out to the fm transmitter. (pifm)
