Intel VAAPI howto with Leia v18 nightly based on Ubuntu 18.04 server

I just tested OpenELEC-Generic.x86_64-6.0-devel-20151016183920-r21488-g163fae9.tar but it did not work well (Kodi does not start) since the kernel is too old (integrated intel skylake i5-6500 with HD Graphics 530).

With a nvidia gtx950 kodi is starting but at 2160p, interface and videos are stuttering - even without any framedrops. It seems to be fine for 24p source videos but not so for 25fps source videos. kodi switches back to 50hz in a 25hz video even if i set the system refresh rate to 25hz.

Anyway i just tested this release: OpenELEC-Generic.x86_64-6.0-devel-20151016183920-r21488-g163fae9.tar

Would it be possible to compile it with 4.3-rc6 or at least 4.2 so that i can test my skylake hardware? With the current 4.1 kernel and the i915 kernel boot "hack" i don't get more than 30fps on hdmi 2.0 - and yes - my mainboard has hdmi 2.0 (at least it should)

PS: it is actually not kodi that fails with skylake but x11 - thats also the reason why i don't have any kodi logs.
