v4l sup­port in the lin­ux­u­la­tor MFCed to 8-stable

I merged the v4l trans­la­tion layer into the lin­ux­u­la­tor of 8-stable. As in -cur­rent, this just means that linux apps (like Skype) can now use FreeBSD native devices which con­form to the v4l ABI. The port mul­ti­me­dia/webcamd pro­vides access to some web­cams (or DVB hard­ware) via the v4l ABI.

Peo­ple which want to test the lin­ux­u­la­tor part should first make sure a native FreeBSD appli­ca­tion has no prob­lem access­ing the device.
