avcodecmap: Add special mapping for mono channel layouts
In ffmpeg this is the same as FRONT_CENTER, but we distinguish between
FRONT_CENTER and MONO in GStreamer. Add an explicit mapping for this special
case in the translations functions.

avviddec: remove realvideo slice_offset handling
Handling slice_offset in avviddec is resulting in invalid memory read.
Since rv decoders anyways handle slice_offset, removing the same to fix
memory mishandlings

configure: Use -Bsymbolic-functions if available
While this is more useful for libraries, some of our plugins with multiple
files and some internal API can also benefit from this.

Require libav provided by FFmpeg at run-time
Error out if system's libav* libraries are not
provided by FFmpeg. Libav-incompatible changes
were introduced to support the latter so we
can no longer support both.

Require libav provided by FFmpeg at build-time
Libav-incompatible changes were introduced to support
FFmpeg and we can no longer properly support Libav.
FFmpeg micro versions for libav* start at 100 (this was
done to differentiate from Libav builds). We use this
to bail at configure time if the system libav* libraries
are not provided by FFmpeg.

* ext/libav/gstavviddec.c:
avviddec: Make sure to use a buffer pool with the correct width/height configured on it for pushing buffers downstream
If downstream does not provide a (usable) pool, we would use our internal
pool. But the internal pool might be configured with a different width/height
because of padding, which then will cause problems if we push buffers from it
directly downstream.
Instead create a new pool if the width/height is different.
This prevents crashes with vaapisink and d3dvideosink for example.
Based on the debugging results and discussions with

avviddec: only free config when pool doesn't take ownership
Since gst_buffer_pool_set_config() takes ownership of the config structure,
it is only necessary to free the structure before using it when the true
branch of if (gst_buffer_pool_config_validate_params) hasn't run.
gst_buffer_pool_set_config() always takes ownership of the structure
regardless of success or failure. Which means the return, checked with
if (!working_pool), has no relation to the state of the structure.

The GStreamer team is proud to announce a new major feature release in the
stable 1.x API series of your favourite cross-platform multimedia framework!
The GStreamer team is pleased to announce the first release of the unstable
1.7 release series. The 1.7 release series is adding new features on top of
the 1.0, 1.2, 1.4 and 1.6 series and is part of the API and ABI-stable 1.x release
series of the GStreamer multimedia framework. The unstable 1.7 release series
will lead to the stable 1.8 release series in the next weeks. Any newly added
API can still change until that point.
This release has been in the works for more than a year and is packed with new
features, bug fixes and other improvements.
