Code changes

Today 03:30 e1553d860d: Open_Plugin add checksum on struct offsets

Adding a checksum over the struct offset will allow checking for compatibility across machines rather than using packed structs to ensure compability

For any file created by the user from the device this isn't really a concern

But for files between machines, across installs (sim v device), possibly even across compilers this at least will alert the user rather than returning junk data

Yesterday 22:03 0f68866ae5: fiiom3k: bump power on delay to 200ms

Needed due to a report that 80ms was not working.

Yesterday 20:45 957add9d75: fiiom3k: adjust power on delay to 80ms

OST timer fix (7a5130a277) causes a boot failure on some units, the battery voltage reading needs more time to stabilize.

Saturday 20:58 6253cdebed: ErosQNative: Fix mdelay calls due to g3859

The battery stabilization delay call seems to need to be about 170 at minimum now, let's do 190 for safety (+20ms).

Saturday 20:58 7a5130a277: x1000: fix broken OST2 timer prescaler

It turns out the prescaler fields in OST_CTRL are 2 bits wide, not 3. The programming manual (as usual) is ambiguous and its diagram shows 2-bit wide fields, but the bit positions in the text give a 3-bit wide field. Ingenic's Linux code and my own testing shows that they are, in fact, 2 bits wide.

This caused the OST2 divisor to be 16 instead of 4; the OST1 divisor was correct. This means that all udelay/mdelay calls took 4x longer than they should've. After this change the OST2 prescaler will be 4, as intended, and udelay/mdelay calls will wait for the intended duration.
