#5622: Add vertical strech fill mode

 In the Netherlands, the analog broadcasters have a lot of shows that are
 in the letterbox format.

 That means there are 2 black bars in the signal, so my PVR-150 records the
 video with the 2 bars in it, which is the expected behavior. Playing back
 these videos on a MythFrontend results in the black bars being displayed
 as well, as is expected, since the bars are in the video.

 This patch adds a new fill method "Vertical Stretch" which removes the
 black bars from the visible area.

 Also this patch fixes a bug with the VideoOutput::ToggleAdjustFill, as
 kAspect_END was used and it should be kAdjustFill_END.

 In the past there has been a lot of discussion on whether or not to add
 this fill mode, but I see no other way to accomplish this. Please see the
 attached screenshots for the differences between the fill modes.

 My FE is set to 16:9 aspect ratio. Also the MPEG2 file has the 16:9 aspect
 ratio, but the black bars are recorded into the MPEG2 file, because that
 is the way a lot of shows are broadcasted here (analog).
