Nowadays there're more and more Android devices hit the market with higher and higher definetion. Therefore, we need to compile Rockbox with higher definetion.
Though we can compile and run Rockbox fluently, it doesn't always work as we expected. Sometimes it can't load background image/WPS/SBS or it'll even stop singing. I did a lot of test and comparison between builds with different version and definition and find out that it's the lacking of buffer which disturbs Rockbox working normally.
Big tracks, images and WPSs/SBSs and maybe other can cause the buffer lacking. We have bigger and bigger RAM for apps now but Rockbox always can't get enough buffer to hold the data. Hope fix!
This task depends upon

You can add the buffersize by modifying the 'core_alloc.c' file.

You can also achieve the goal by modifying ./tools/configure.
