[mythtv] [PATCH] process cutlist without transcoding (final)

Well, I've finally finished the Reencoder patch which allows for
processing the cutlist without reencoding the entire file.
I don't use the cutlist too often, but it seems to be holding up
reasonably well.

I kept the new frametypes as per my original implementation (keep track
of keyframe offsets) rather than Isaac's suggestion for micro-jumps (The
micro-jump method requires more CPU processing, and adds more overhead
for any future format conversion).  If people really feel strongly, I can
implement it with micro-jumps, but I don't think it is worth it.

Note that this patch enables the transcoder polling thread again.  I have
fixed all previously reported bugs, and it has been quite stable on my
system for months now.

These things are still on my todo list:
1) Add better support for MPEG2 streams (I have a PVR250 on the way to
help with this)
2) Seperate the Reencoder from NuppelVideoPlayer.  This will require
quite a bit of surgery, but it would be a nice cleanup.
3) Have the transcoder save the queue in the database rather than in
