Subject: [PATCH] media: v4l2-ctrls: add encoder skip frames control

If V4L2_CID_MPEG_VIDEO_ENC_SKIP_FRAMES control is enabled
encoder can drop frames, if required, to achieve target bitrate
instead of modifying the quantization parameter which lowers
the encoded frame quality.

Reference: 4.3.8.1 OMX_Video_ControlRateConstantSkipFrames
