[PD] pd~ fifo flag and block delays

The "delay" setting controls the ringbuffer size of the parent process 
(only true if not in "callback" mode). The "-fifo" argument for [pd~] 
controls the ringbuffer size of the subprocess.

Any CPU spikes which the subprocess ringbuffer can't handle will "spill" 
over to the parent process.
