Thanks for doing what I promised to do at the time of that discussion....

There is no need to perform 64-bit multiplications when decoding 16-bit
audio - this will just slow the decoder down in the most common case.
IMO, a better solution would be to work out in which cases a 32-bit loop
would overflow, and use the 64-bit version only for those frames.

I implemented that approach in the version of ffmpeg's flac.c that I
adapted for Rockbox.  You can see that version of decode_subframe_lpc here:
