Code changes

9th Oct 15:22 1da2708: Fix timer Agptek Rocker (other hosted players)

on timer_unregister callbacks are not removed

It seems (at least on the Rocker) timers continue to fire (for a bit??)

Now we store the registered callback in the sigev structure and check that the callback matches the one registered when the timer is created.

This should stop the possible case of a new timer getting spurious callbacks We also now NULL the callbacks on un-register which should stop the segfaults

Added some notes to timer.c and timer.h

13th Oct 21:21 3d6d903: iPod Classic: enable IRAM1 in bootloader

7442742 ("iPod Classic: disable IRAM1") was causing subsequent ipod6g bootloader builds to result in a completely black screen upon installation, with recovery only possible with a reflash through DFU mode.

IRAM1 is re-enabled for bootloader only.

7th Oct 19:26 7f1e6b4: lua rockev cleanup

with the addition of suspending all events on thread start and exit we don't really need to block on THREAD_QUIT in so many places

Removed suspend clearing on event unregister and updated comments

7th Oct 11:35 1908418: lua rockev fix possible race on thread exit

report of call after free on event thread on Agptek Rocker I'm guessing its a race condition between the thread and the timer but can't say for sure without some more testing
