Another update, but this one it should be final.

- Made the read-implementation for 7z thread-safe in _LZMA_IN_CB mode by 
storing the buffer in the FileInputStream (new name!). This requires a hacky 
guessing of the FileInputStream pointer via offsetof(), since I can only pass 
a ISzInStream through 7z, which has no room for userdata...

- Do not anymore use _LZMA_IN_CB by default, since it probably doesn't bring 
much benefit as I use 7z to decompress whole folders at once anyway.
