 It's ok, we don't need NEON capable buildds; this builds an alternate
 set of ffmpeg libs for NEON (available via hwcaps).

 It actually seems to have been added in armv6t2+ (even in ARM mode).

 Now the NEON flavor implies armv7-a, so that's what we should turn on.

 Riku, Reinhard, I only checked the gcc tests in the attached debdiff,
 but didn't do a full build under Debian; would you mind trying it out?

 Now one thing which this patch does NOT do is turn on armv7-a for the
 NEON flavour if the toolchain defaults to armv6t2, so we might be
 missing some small optimizations, but I didn't check how to test for
 armv7-a versus armv6t2.  If ffmpeg relies on the some armv7-a-only
 assembly, then we will quickly find out  :-)
