SCI: Resource manager should stream audio

Reported by: csnover Owned by: sev-

Audio resources are moved entirely into memory instead of being streamed from disk. This causes excessive memory usage (some games like Phantasmagoria play audio files in excess of 10MB). Audio32 already works on streams, so only the resource manager needs to learn how to create audio streams from disk instead of memory.

This could potentially lead to big concurrent number of open files which in the past was leading to problem on some ports with slow media like PS2 or DreamCast.
