ffmpeg: Switch to revision based versioning, not release #479
Discussing the proposed ffmpeg changes (#477) on slack brought up an issue with the current ffmpeg versioning.

The current 3.0-xbmc ffmpeg version is now 3.0.2, which is 33 commits ahead of the 3.0.1 version I downloaded in March.
Someone building master who has never downloaded the ffmpeg tarball will build with the latest 3.0-xbmc (ie. 3.0.2, plus a few more commits) while I will continue building with 3.0.1, blissfully ignorant of any new fixes (or new bugs).
This clearly isn't a good situation, as we should all be building the same source code, hence this switch to hash based versioning.
