New internal command to refresh the icons in file list

Sometimes Total Commander can show incorrect icons, which is especially problematic in Search results panel view where Total Commander doesn't get notifications from operating system about changed items (for example, files after feeding to listbox became NTFS hard links, which should now be indicated by adding the overlay "arrows" to their icons).

Total Commander cannot watch the Search results list panel view for changes as it can do for normal folders. Although Total Commander has a command to re-read current folder, which updates some file data, the Search results view is not a folder so the command to re-read current folder is designed to leave (destroy) Search results view.

It would be possible to solve the problem by adding a new internal command just to update icons of selected files.
