20th Sep 22:18 bbf4ff2: Fix DEBUG build codecs

In DEBUG build, the codec API struct is consider with DEBUG flag in apps/ but without DEBUG flah in rbcodecs/, leading to unmatched structure and horrible crashes in some cases (mostly encoders). I have no idea why the codecs Makefile removes the DEBUG flag (maybe for performance reasons?) but it cannot be right.

20th Nov 20:35 a88f57e: nwztools/scripts: mount storage with ext3 instead of ext2

Since ext3 supports ext2, we can support more platforms. Some platforms use ext4 with a very specific set of options, we I haven't encountered those yet so it's not currently a problem.

20th Nov 20:33 ce966d3: hwstub/tools: fix compilation of shell against lua5.3

The unsigned function were deprecated and hidden begind a compat flag. Since they will get removed in the next version, I simply reimplemented them, those are mostly casts anyway.
