FatdogArm Beta2 sfs re-uploaded

The main change is that xorg-server is now built with these two patches: http://forum.odroid.com/viewtopic.php?p=37553&f=7#p37553 and http://forum.odroid.com/viewtopic.php?p=35833&f=7#p35833 for better performance and stability. Thanks Daniel (aka dsd). This change only improves Odroid, and has no impact in other platforms as only Odroid uses DRI2 interface at the moment (Allwinner: fbdev, OLPC/Marvell: DRI1, Cubox-i/Freescale: DRI1).

Coupled with a few updates in the repo and youtube-dl, it is now possible to write a simple script that will stream video and play it fullscreen on Odroid/Cubox-i directly from youtube. Perhaps I'll share that script later.

"RE: Have time yet to try Raspberry Pi 2 Support"
No, sorry. I still have one project in the backburner for FatdogArm - somebody donated with a Google Nexus 7, a very fine tablet on its own, so that I can get FatdogArm to run on it. Between my injury and other family commitments, I have not been able to work on it; so anytime I can spare for FatdogArm will go towards this one first.

Anyway, to get FatdogArm to boot on Raspi2, all you need is to find a suitable bootloader (you can use bootloader used by other ARM distros as long as they support loading an initrd); and a suitable kernel - the most important thing is that the kernel must be patched with aufs. For the rest, you can follow the FatdogArm adaptation guide in my wiki.
