Bug#628997: gecko-mediaplayer maintenance

Done. Furthermore I've incorporated, amongst others, the following changes to gmtk:
 * Enabled hardened build flags.

 * Added a patch from upstream to fix issues with missing symbols.
 * Added symbols files for both libraries.

I didn't have a look at debian/copyright so far. I plan to do that tomorrow.

I've also started to work on gecko-mediaplayer 1.0.5:

 * Enabled hardened build flags.
 * Dropped the dependencies on specific browsers.

I'd appreciate comments on the state of gmtk so that we can get it uploaded
soon. And there is one issue that is bugging me: libgmlib and libgmtk both
export symbols that should be private [1]. Any thoughts on that?

Kind regards,
