[NTLK] Einstein on Raspberry Pi: It's Alive!

I was investigating this bug that Morgan reported on Einstein:

https://github.com/pguyot/Einstein/issues/13

The issue was that Mac Debug builds of Einstein would finish booting, and optimized Release builds would not.

The problem also seemed pretty similar to what I had experienced trying to get Einstein to boot on my Raspberry Pi 3, so I dug in and found a fix that seemed to work on the Mac.

I applied the fix to my Raspberry Pi version too and it actually booted!

There are still a number of problems with this build, not the least of which is that my screen is the wrong orientation and the window is bigger than the screen.  :)

I have precious little time to dedicate into taking this Pi experiment much further, but if you have a Pi 3, programming experience, and need help bringing it up, I should be able to help you get at least that far.
