Right now MP3 files with ID3v2 tags bigger than 2MB no longer identify as
MP3. This patch makes the mp3 probe return 1 on files with id3v2 tags where
mp3 was not identified to make these files identiy as MP3 on the last probe
pass. A more elegant solution would be for the probes to be able to request
seeking, however it seems that that would piss all over the API. I know
Michael had suggested a return value to request more data in general but in
theory ID3v2 can grow over 256 MB and I'm nto sure we'd want to sent that
much information to the probe.
