osx: add Apple Remote support
After killing the non functional AR support in c8fd9e5 I got much complaints so this adds AR support back in (and it works). I am using the HIDRemote class by Felix Schwarz and that part of the code is under the BSD license. I slightly modified it replacing [NSApplication sharedApplication] with NSApp. The code of the class is quite complex (probably because it had to deal with all the edge cases with IOKit) but it works nicely as a black box. In a later commit I'll remove the deprecation warnings caused by HIDRemote's usage of Gestalt. Check out `etc/input.conf` for the default bindings. Apple Remote functionality is automatically compiled in when cocoa is enabled. It can be disabled at runtime with the `--no-ar` option.
