Infobright ICE importer IGNORE LINES patch

The ICE importer in any of the current versions of ICE, newest 3.3.1, doesn't support IGNORE LINES in the LOAD DATA statement. For example, this this data file would fail, as we can't tell it to skip the first line:

Test data

It is possible to issue the LOAD DATA statement with the IGNORE LINES option, but it is ignored by the loader.
It is very easy to implement in the loader, and the attached patched does exactly this.

The patch is tested in ICE 3.3.1, but should also work in earlier versions. It must be applied in the ICE source code root.

I've created a bug report here.
