[meta-freescale] Regarding GStreamer-1.x status on iMX6Q

due to unforessen difficulties and some subtle but severe bugs that were 
found, I have to postpone the release date by a few days. December 5th 
to be exact. Sorry for the inconvenience. It is not that much work until 
I have a beta release.

I will also scrap the 3D support, since GStreamer itself does not have 
proper support for it yet. This is under discussion by the GStreamer 
developers ( https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=611157#c75 ). 3D 
is far from trivial, so it is best to follow the discussion at this time.
