Linux support

Ubuntu porting to the Nexus 7


Overall the device is a very nice porting target as it provides all common linux interfaces we need. Firmware is mostly the same as on the Galaxy Nexus and utilizing the Android graphic libraries should be easily possible through libhybris. Furthermore we can profit a lot from the Ubuntu Nexus 7 porting project.
