Today 01:06 c55be3b: maemo port: Fix startup crash exposed by audio thread refactoring

The refactoring of the audio thread in this commit
----------------------------------------------- commit 5857c44017a1641fce7f00da7f16c143daacbaf6 Author: Michael Sevakis Date: Fri May 31 02:41:02 2013 -0400

Refactor audio thread to run both recording and playback.

moved pcm_init() next to dsp_init() in apps/main.c:init(). Before that pcm_init() was called by audio_init().

Unfortunately the maemo init code didn't properly wait until the maemo thread was fully initialized, leading to dangling pointers when the code called by pcm_init() tried to access maemo's variables.

Fix it by refactoring the "very fast shutdown" semaphore to wait until maemo is initialized in any case.

This should also fix very rare rockbox crashes on startup that I got once a year or so. The new code has been tested by a script that starts and kills rockbox after one second.

Wednesday 22:29 3add6c7: Fix up maemo port after byte swap header refactoring

Turns out maemo's old gcc 4.2.1 doesn't include any arch optimized swapXX() functions, just plain C implementations.

Before we pull in lots of linux kernel headers for the C implementation, just stick to rockbox's own version.
