This commit changes a few things about the noise substitution
logic:
 - Brings back the quantization factor (reduced to 3) during
   scalefactor index calculations.
 - Rejects any zeroed bands. They should be inaudiable and it's
   a waste transmitting the scalefactor indices for these.
 - Uses swb_offsets instead of incrementing a 'start' with every
   window group size.
 - Rejects all PNS during short windows.
Overall improves quality. There was a plan to use the lfg system
to create the random numbers instead of using whatever the decoder
uses but for now this works fine. Entropy is far from important here.
