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.
