v17 LibreELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 17.0)

Also, you know LE has been using gcc 5.3.0 since December 2015? But then we build the whole of LE with the same gcc.

So I investigated this a little more and I share my findings to save you a possible future headache and to possibly bring this to the attention of some skilled Kodi dev who may actually fix the issue.

The crash is still present with gcc-5.4.0, you have not stumbled into it because of this https://github.com/LibreELEC/LibreELEC.t...ge.mk#L240
--disable-optimizations
If kodi is build with -O2 or higher for arm it crashes on the start.
The issue is here http://trac.kodi.tv/ticket/16609
The patch provided in the ticket https://github.com/zpon/xbmc-imx-git/blo...ults.patch effectively allows kodi to run on arm if built with --enable-optimizations.

The crash does not happen on x86_64.

I can't tell if it's gcc bug (most likely) or kodi bug.
I'll update the ticket with my findings, hope someone with good knowledge of gcc can either fix this in Kodi or file a proper bug report to gcc devs.
