[Pkg-chromium-maint] Bug#838515: chromium: Please enable widevine

Package: chromium
Version: 53.0.2785.113-1
Severity: wishlist


Please enable the Widevine CDM adapter.
This allows users to fetch Google’s Widevine CDM plugin and use it with chromium.

A tested debdiff is attached.
When enable_widevine=1 is set, chromium builds libwidevinecdmadapter.so and libwidevinecdm.so.
libwidevinecdm.so is just a dummy plugin so there is no need to include it in the binary package.
Defining WIDEVINE_CDM_VERSION_STRING is necessary to make it build. The value doesn't seem to
matter as far as I can tell.
