SCI: resource-view-patch on SQ5/German fix

Hi there,

I just implemented a quick fix so that SQ5/German doesn't bark about views being not there/invalid. It seems that patch loading is somewhat flawed, perhaps one should take a look at how SCI View does things.

Hm, this is a hack, and we should actually investigate what's the problem with patch loading. Leaving it open for now, until the real issue is sorted

I just disassembled SCI View. There are several special cases, all occur when header size has bit 7 set. I have done 2 of them (80h and 81h), I don't fully understand the other coding, so that's why I'm leaving it. I hope someone finds a patch file that has that special case in it so ScummVM can support it as well.

ffs.: disassembly attached
