QSV VPPFrameRateConversion enhancements

Summary of the bug:
In vf_vpp_qsv.c, there is support for mfxExtVPPFrameRateConversion. However, the only algorithm used is MFX_FRCALGM_DISTRIBUTED_TIMESTAMP. In Intel Media SDK, two other algorithms are supported: MFX_FRCALGM_PRESERVE_TIMESTAMP and MFX_FRCALGM_FRAME_INTERPOLATION.

It would be useful to allow the user to select their preferred algorithm instead of only supporting MFX_FRCALGM_DISTRIBUTED_TIMESTAMP. Moreover, enabling support for MFX_FRCALGM_FRAME_INTERPOLATION would allow users to have another frame interpolation filter than minterpolate which could provide significant speed enhancements on supported hardware.

The usefulness may not be as great as I initially anticipated. See clarification of frame interpolation support in MediaSDK here: Essentially, MFX_FRCALGM_FRAME_INTERPOLATION was likely not implemented fully in MediaSDK so it simply duplicates/drops frames instead of interpolating them.

In case this gets corrected, though, ffmpeg should still expose all the FrameRateConversion algorithms to the user.
