Change CPU governor policy

Per default, performance governor is active when Kodi is in use (i.e. no screensaver is active). When Kodi is running idle (with screensaver on), xbian switches to conservative governor. To change the governor for active use to ondemand, append this line to /etc/default/xbian-module-init-tools:
