See current CVS for a start at this -- needs a couple bugfixes, if anyone else 
wants to help out..

Log Message:
Very preliminary CLE266 hardware decoding.  Lots of video corruption, looks 
like I'm not sending it frames in the proper order or not setting up the 
prev/next frames right.  Pausing crashes it.  No OSD.  Anyone wanting to try 
and fix things, go right ahead =) 
I don't think I broke anything else, but, ya never know.  Need to do a 
make distclean.
