Enable OMX Decode on Origen

Registered by Zach Pfeffer on 2011-12-20

The Origen's Exynos4210 contains a multimedia core with a multi-format codec providing 1080p@30fps. (http://www.origenboard.org//files_/Linaro_Origen_LowCostBoard.pdf). We will enable this core and integrate support into ICS. Binaries will be available using the same click-through method used to distribute graphics.
