Okay, what I'll do for now is integrate stuff in a local git repo
(cloned from master) and send patches made from that.  We might be able
to move it to a public-facing git repo later.

Here's a couple more to keep things moving.

One removes the #ifdef magic kludge from Ian's code, and replaces it
with the autoconf test from my previous patch.  Just a bit of cleanup.

The other adds some basic NEON blitters for RGB565 framebuffers,
covering SRC RGB565 and SRC xRGB8888.  On our test hardware they get
very close to maximum memory bandwidth.
