v17 LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 17.0)

These are bleeding-edge builds, which is often a double-edged sword. In most cases a new kernel will fix existing bugs, and even make new hardware usable that wasn't previously usable (Skylake, whatever). If we don't plough on and use the latest kernel we'll have all those people with the latest unusable hardware complaining because they're excluded. Not to mention finding these bugs early is the best way to getting them fixed upstream (in theory, anyway...).

When should we switch to a new kernel? Who is to say when it is ready without widespread testing? Should we always be a major kernel release or two behind, which would mean we would only now be switching to 4.4 or possibly 4.5... so much for bleeding edge. Smile

Unfortunately in this case, 4.6 has turned out to be a bit of a dog - whose fault that is I don't know, probably Intel's as non-Intel gear seems fine with 4.6. Hopefully 4.7 will be an improvement. I suspect 4.6 might be fairly short-lived.
