Implement Scrobbling compatibility (close #11904)

This modifies the AudioService so that it broadcasts an intent in order to
inform other apps (Last.FM/Libre.FM scrobblers, QuickLyric, etc.) of which
track is currently playing.

The intent contains the following data:
Track, artist, album, duration and a boolean that says whether the track is
paused or playing.

The intent uses the standard "com.android.music.metachanged" action. Most
apps broadcast their metadata by default. Some require the user to enable
it in the settings, which is the wrong choice IMO.
