[opensource-dev] Openjpeg/KDU the cold hard metrics

I found a simple fix to the OpenJPEG v2 library that corrects the previous
crashes that occurred with the test harness.

The fix is attached to https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/SNOW-361

I also updated Robin's spreadsheet to reflect the improved performance.
OpenJPEG v2 is now marginally quicker than the OpenJPEG v1.3.0 that ships
with Viewer 2.

Previously the OpenJPEG v2 library was crashing when it skipped over packets
for higher discard levels. The library was skipping over too few bytes.

Earlier test results for OpenJPEG v2 were performing a full decode. The
"Reduce" feature (that performs partial decodes when the image was
incomplete) had to be disabled because of the crashes. Now that the crashes
are fixed, the updated test results for v2 reflect the same partial decodes
that OpenJPEG v1.3.0 was performing.

The fix will likely be submitted to the OpenJPEG project tomorrow night,
when I have more time.

Hi (again) Sheet and everyone else,

I've started another sheet with a fresh set of results on another
system of mine, please feel free to add your own tests rows


If you want to compare to KDU you need to compare to KDU on your
system don't compare to by KDU results or anyone elses, thats not a
fair comparision.

OJP 2.0 is not playing nice with the local_asset texture set needs some
