Any update?

I can confirm the patch (+ 2 Marek's patches)
fix the crashing in android-x86.
But I don't know whether if the
thread-safe issue affect us.

Since I'm going to release lollipop-x86 soon
and the camera crashing is a must fix bug.
I'll just apply the patch to the lollipop-x86
if no further update in 1-2 day(s).
