Hi Martin,

Thanks for all your comments, I'm OK with all of them, I'll propose a new
of patches tomorrow.

For the makefile part, it's in vlc-android git (iomx_hwbuffer.c is build in
libiomx.so). Patches are ready but I didn't send them since I was not sure
propose the android headers patches that are about 6MB.

For iomx Graphics Buffers, I need to build libiomx against ics, jb, jbmr2
kitkat. I'm not 100% sure that a specific jbmr2 build is needed. I did it
Archos Video Player, but maybe it was for an other private API (sigh...).
