sine sweep test case

The issue is SDL_ResampleAudio currently lowpass filters at 0.5*inrate, even in the case when outrate < inrate. In other words, the part of the "band-limited resampling" paper that says - "if rho < 1... the step-size through the filter table is reduced.." is not implemented.

Here is a test case with a 0-48kHz sine sweep sampled at 96kHz.

testresample sweep96k.wav sweep44100.wav 44100 1
sox sweep44100.wav -n spectrogram -o sweep44100.png
open sweep44100.png

(careful with the volume if you play these!)

It should be resampled as a single upward sweep that stops at the 22kHz nyquist limit with silence after that, but currently you get a siren effect due to the aliasing.
I have a patch in the works for this.
