package/rpi-userland: add patch to remove faulty assert()
While porting wayland/weston to run on the RPi, I always tripped on this assert. Thinking there was an issue with weston, I poked the weston guys on IRC about the issue. 'daniels' on suggested removing the assert altogether, as that's what they had pushed upstream in their wayland pull-request: Turns out they forgot to include this in their pull-request, but that they were using a patched rpi-userland without that assert. And indeed, without that assert, weston runs on the RPi. :-) Signed-off-by: "Yann E. MORIN" <> Signed-off-by: Peter Korsgaard <>
