Opencore logs and releases

1. Enable Opencore 2.0x logs:
1)At compilation time, add the marco ENABLE_PV_LOGGING=1
$ cd <android_home>
$ touch external/opencore/oscl/oscl/osclbase/src/pvlogger.h

2)At runtime, /sdcard/pvlogger.txt is used to specify enabled log level and related tags. (write 8 alone in it will enable all pv logs.) Below is extracted from external/opencore/android/android_logger_config.h:
To configure logging at runtime, a file pvlogger.txt must be located in the sdcard.
The format for log level and logger tag in the file should be: "level,node". Note that there should be no space between log level and logger tag.
For example, pvlogger.txt can look like:
Above example means log the message level PVLOGMSG_ALERT for PVPlayerEngine and PVLOGMSG_DEBUG for PVSocketNode. See pvlogger.h for log level values.

2. Enable Opencore 1.0 logs:
1)Change external/opencore/oscl/pvlogger/src/pvlogger.h:
/* Release mode-- No logging */
---- Change this value to 5
2)Change external/opencore/android/thread_init.cpp:
#if 0 --------- Change this value to 1
PVLoggerAppender *appender = new


3)Rebuild android source.
