[vlc-devel] [PATCH] Revert to Lua 5.2

The patch removed in c4dd067cac733eb934667b34e84e3eb4e722f277 was not 
updated for Lua 5.3.

Now the luac behaviour is build machine dependent, so for example a 
win32 build made on x86_64 Linux will make .luac not loadable, since 
they use a different ABI than win32.

Ludovic was ok with reverting at the time:

11:40 < etix> funman: then complain to j-b, I did the patch for my own needs without any intention to push it
11:41 < etix> To be honest I don't mind reverting everything and going back to lua 5.2.

Since nothing happened on that front in 3 months I suggest again reverting 
until the patch is updated.
