Update XBMC package to the 11.0 Eden Beta 3 release

Registered by Ricardo Salveti on 2012-01-25

Current XBMC package is based on eden beta 1, and as beta 2 is already published, we should rebase our package to be closer with upstream (http://xbmc.org/natethomas/2012/01/22/xbmc-11-0-eden-beta-2-available-now/).

The goal is to have XBMC Eden release working with our image, and rebasing on top of the beta releases help avoiding big conflicts.

Whiteboard

[rsalveti, Jan 29, 2012] This blueprint is to cover what is needed to update the current package with the latest beta available. At the time it's the Beta 2, but when implementing it it could also be Beta 3. Please also try to get it building with mesa-dev packages, so then we could later enable XBMC on different platforms than Panda.
[rsalveti, Feb 9, 2012] XBMC Eden Beta 3 was just released.
[aviksil, Feb 17, 2012] Beta 3 is now available in staging, with mesa egl support, but the experience is not good (mouse motion is too slow).

Meta:
Headline: An updated XBMC package, based on 11.0 Eden Beta 3, is now available at the Overlay PPA.
Acceptance: New package available at the PPA, builded against the mesa-dev packages and also compatible with sw rendering.
