Incoming from the android mailing list, this patch is intended to
allow vlc to play from any point in a file descriptor.

This is important on android because android assets are only
accessible by inputstream or by way of a file descriptor that
represents all the assets squished together. The Android asset manager
gives a file descriptor, offset, and length that allows programs to
find the right asset. I've tested this and have gotten it to play
videos that were stored as assets, but this is my first time working
in the vlc codebase, so let me know if everything is fine.
