Ati / HDMI audio output

HDMI Audio is disabled by default due to a black screen on some monitors. To enable it, edit on the usb key the files boot/grub/grub.cfg and EFI/boot/grub.cfg by adding radeon.audio=1 at the end of the linux line, example :

menuentry "batocera.linux" {
linux /boot/linux label=BATOCERA console=tty3 quiet loglevel=0 vt.global_cursor_default=0
initrd /boot/initrd.gz
}

becomes

menuentry "batocera.linux" {
linux /boot/linux label=BATOCERA console=tty3 quiet loglevel=0 vt.global_cursor_default=0 radeon.audio=1
initrd /boot/initrd.gz
}
