Do you have an android box that this works on?  I tested such a patch on my Measy B4S and mediacodec fails during
configure.  I did some further research, downloaded android SDK sources for another similar box and looked for
problems.  Turns out mediacodec is missing support in other places for hevc.  Specifically, there is a hard coded list
of "roles" in one of the functions that doesn't include an hevc decoder role. I see that you have fixed a similar issue
in VLCs OMX implementation.

I've seen reports that some manufacturers have made hevc mediacodec decode working, so I think some are distributing
with modified SDK. Do you have one of these, if so which?
