#319 Increase write block size for meta data handling

libFLAC (59)

According to http://ntfs-3g.org/support.html#dd the performance for meta data handling of FLAC files on ntfs-3g devices could be improved by increasing the write block size.

From a quick grep at the source, it looks like some tweaks in ./src/libFLAC/metadata_iterators.c might be enough.

See also https://launchpad.net/bugs/24063, where I've intially found this issue, because it seems to slow down amarok dramatically when writing FLAC meta data on ntfs-3g.

    I'm a little skeptical... anytime libFLAC writes to a file, it uses POSIX streams which are buffered internally. are there specific changes in libFLAC that are confirmed to be faster?

    What's the status of this bug, I notice the Ubuntu flac package still has this bug marked as open.
