MIDI: Fix SysEx handling. We need to clear the event status after each message. Otherwise, after a SysEx message the first byte of the next event will incorrectly inherit its delta_time. This causes a delay of several seconds in nearly every MT-32 games which uses a lot of long SysEx.

SHADERS/MENU: Prevent undefined behaviour when failing to load shaders
SHADERS/MENU: Pressing the Start button on 'Load Shader Preset' will reset all shader passes and apply changes, effectively disabling the shaders
SHADERS/MENU: New menu options for removing shader presets (global/core/parent/etc).
