Based on tip of OpenELEC master (5d257577, changelog) and tip of XBMC master (9b08199d, changelog) with the following modifications: Build Highlights:
  1. New firmware
  2. Zero copy ffmpeg interface
    popcornmix Wrote:There is a fairly significant commit today (needs the updated firmware).

    This enables zero copy for software decode. Previously buffers were copied to gpu.
    For HEVC in particular that was expensive in sdram bandwidth terms.

    So, there should be a HEVC performance boost.
    However there is a lot of new code, so regressions are possible (in any software decode use case).
  3. Fix 3D ISO playback
