There's still some fine tuning needed.  I'm using kofficetests and like 200 real life test files and there are still false positives.  I need more, More, MORE test files. :)

Pushed by uzak into branch 'master'.

libmso: Relaxed storage validation in POLE.

There were false positives reported for the invalid file format classification.
Word8 documents to be specific.  Of course those do not follow the Compound
File Binary File Format.
