mpegplayer: Fix aliasing rules violation on multi-core targets
As the PP series has no sense of cache coherency between its multiple cores, we need to ensure the vo_data structure does not share cachelines with anything else. This was previously done by defining a uint8_t array and trying to access it via typecasting hell, triggering a large pile of aliasing violation warnings on newer toolchains and/or higher optimization levels. Instead of violating the C spec in an undefined-behaviour-sort-of-way, create a union of the right size and alignment, and make one of its members the structure we care about. Voila, everyone is happy. Change-Id: Iad78f8132225437cd4aa10e6e5f6ae58ba996c19
