Motion - Draw Textspeedup

improvement of draw_textn

Description of Patch

I played a little bit with draw_textn and optimized it.

Now instead of array's, with many calculation inside, i'm using pointers and do all calculation outside the loop.

Optimization Steps:

* Insted of running throu draw_table and search for the ascii, i made a lookup table for 127 ascii's where unknown ascii's point to a "blank". This is done for small and big chars.

* For each ascii i use this pointer to the draw_table.pix array, which is only incremented for each pixel.

* The pointer to the image for every line of a ascii is updated by adding a line offset (line_offset).

* To point to the x,y-location of the next acsii i subtract a offset (next_char_offs).

* This all is done in one step for small and big characters.

small bugfixes included:

* prevent writing over right border

* initialize_chars() was called for each thread
