Got it from Hans Christian, which in his turn, got it from a colleague,
so they need to update it if that is to happen.
A lot of the stuff seems to be AVR32 specific in-line assembly code 
using the AVR32 DSP features to optimize the mplayer algorithms, 
so it seems utterly useless to apply for other architectures.
