new x264 feature: VUI parameters

thx to Christian Heine x264 is now able to let the user set various VUI (Video Usability Info) flags in the stream

The VUI settings are not used by the encoder but are merely suggestions to the playback equipment. See doc/vui.txt for details. Use at your own risk.
the most widely known VUI flag is probably the SAR one

      --sar width:height      Specify Sample Aspect Ratio
      --overscan <string>     Specify crop overscan setting ["undef"]
                                  - undef, show, crop
      --videoformat <string>  Specify video format ["undef"]
                                  - component, pal, ntsc, secam, mac, undef
      --fullrange <string>    Specify full range samples setting ["off"]
                                  - off, on
      --colorprim <string>    Specify color primaries ["undef"]
                                  - undef, bt709, bt470m, bt470bg
                                    smpte170m, smpte240m, film
      --transfer <string>     Specify transfer characteristics ["undef"]
                                  - undef, bt709, bt470m, bt470bg, linear,
                                    log100, log316, smpte170m, smpte240m
      --colormatrix <string>  Specify color matrix setting ["undef"]
                                  - undef, bt709, fcc, bt470bg
                                    smpte170m, smpte240m, GBR, YCgCo
      --chromaloc <integer>   Specify chroma sample location (0 to 5) [0]
