DC2N5-LC PRG file playback

I finally found some time and motivation to add the PRG file playback feature in DC2N5-LC 🙂

Although I had implemented a PC tool for aiding this development, PRG2TAP, I decided to rewrite the whole conversion using some code I had drafted before I implemented PRG2TAP, which is more suitable for an embedded system as it has a smaller footprint. The current implementation in DC2N5-LC does not require buffering of PRG data as it does the conversion to TAP data on-the-fly, without writing the TAP data to the SD Card either 🙂

To start with, PRGs are converted to a CBM ROM Loader-encoded TAP stream, however I plan to add support for Turbo Tape 250 next.
