RPi: changed gpu_mem to 100mb for 256mb RPis. fixes #1713

samba: build libsmbclient as shared lib

avahi/samba: When samba is built with avahi support the server name is advertised in UPPERCASE as samba forces this when setting-up avahi via dbus. If we disable avahi support in samba and include a samba.service file with avahi the hostname is correctly advertised as the user entered it; e.g. OpenELEC not OPENELEC ..we can also use a tweaked samba.service so Mac users with an AppleTV see the AppleTV icon in instead of a generic server icon. this fixes #2282

Mount /var as tmpfs and limit the use of tmpfs

util-linux: use blocksize=1MB for creating the swapfile
