      . First draft for ffmpeg - Video For Linux support
    
        The purpose is to be able to stream and compress in real-time
        video from a video4linx device (webcam, tuners...)
    
      . New modules :
        - v4linput
        - v4lreader : ioctl for using the video4linux API
        - raw2ts : converts raw frames into TS packets
    
          V4Lreader -> Raw frames -> ffmpeg -> ES -> PES -> TS
                                     \-------raw2ts----------/
    
          PTS and PCRs are regenerated using the system clock....
          but it works quite well !
    
      . To compile :
        % ./configure --enable-v4l --with-ffmpeg=/usr/src/ffmpeg for example
    
      . To be improved :
        - Support for others webcams & implements ioctl for TV tuners
        - Improve the PES header / TS header / PTS / PCR generation
        - Generate real PAT & PMT using libdvbpsi
        - More parameters like quality/bitrate, image size
          (quality is defined by m_CodecContext->qmax and qmin)
        - stabilize
    
      . Tested :
        - Philips 730 webcam with vlc 0.4.6.
