11th Oct 08:09 f45db55: lua rockev rewrite

After a few issues with the timer code in the hosted players

I realized a few shortcomings in the original rockev code... This rewrite gives thread_exit an explicit flag instead of 0 custom events now have a set-able timeout previous lua hooks are restored flags are stored in uint8_t

2017-05-16 62e5a30: MultiBoot_Firmware

Stop gap till I get a chance to work on the root folder stuff

Makes whatever volume marked by bootdata.boot_volume the base or root volume, mounts all other volumes after the specified boot volume. Has the effect of swapping the SD card to the slot for internal and Internal storage is mounted as the Sd-card.

Does not honor root redirect -- uses .rockbox folder in the root of boot volume
