Fix kernel network config parameters in sysctl.conf
I've got some settings that seem to work okay. At least the video isn't dropping out completely. But I still get frozen playback on the player.
The updates are on the RPI2 server and the media player boxes. I may need a few others (see my browser tabs on galileo). The same configs are needed in both server and player. I also have updates in /etc/init.d/S40Network to set txlength for wlan0.
I've ordered a 1G network switch and some cables. If that works more consistently I may have to switch to a wired demo.

- % Done changed from 0 to 100
All mods to /etc/sysctl.conf are now in the skeleton tree. Same with S40network and S11mdev mods (the latter is where sysctl -p is called to load sysctl.conf changes).
The wired setup works but I discovered it isn't possible to configure both the wifi and eth ports at the same time using pnc. That's a reported bug now. In the interim I can manually configure the eth port using ifconfig if necessary.
That said, the wifi is now working much better so the eth port is probably not necessary for the Maker Faire demo. I'll take the switch and cables just in case, however.
Changes committed and pushed.
