meson: add a video codec support option

Dave Airlie requested to merge airlied/mesa:video-codec-patent-list into main

This allows to turn on/off all hw implementations for a specific video codec across the tree. Patent encumbered codecs can cause problems for distributions due to the nature of at least MPEG-LA licensing. is probably the best explaination I can find.

From a distro pov, codec fees are a jigsaw puzzle, you only seem to become a problem when you fit all the pieces.

This patch will allow disabling the mesa piece of the puzzle.
