    omxil: Allow using IOMX on Android · c7978950

    This adds a fake OMX core implementation, relying the calls
    via IOMX to the media server, which contains the actual
    OMX core.
    
    Building with IOMX requires private Android headers from the
    Android source tree, namely the frameworks/base and
    system/core repositories. (Either froyo or gingerbread
    should work for building.) This API is not public, has no
    ABI guarantees and isn't supported.
    
    Linking also requires libraries extracted from a
    froyo/gingerbread device or emulator.
    
    Since there are no ABI guarantees, linking to this API might
    make the .so fail to load on some devices, so for proper use
    it should be in a dynamically loaded module, separate from the
    rest of the VLC core and modules.
    
    Since this can lead to crashes on unsupported devices, it should
    only be used in production on whitelisted device/firmware
    combinations that are known to work.
