Add support for global alpha multiplicator to video-blend and
gstoverlaycomposition interface

updated the patch

Now global_alpha is applied automatically in get_pixels*() unless requested
differently by caller.

Some notes:

- As proposed per-rectangle seq_num is updated automatically if global_alpha is

- The current implementation is 'optimized' for speed and saving memory. I
first tried an implementation integrating nicely into the internal caching of
preprocessed/scaled rectangles, meaning that after each application of
global_alpha the resulting pixel-data was added to the rectangle cache. This
turned out to be too inefficient in terms of CPU-usage and memory consumption
and made osd-fading pratically unusable in our application on STBs. Therefore I
kept caching only for scaled and un/premultiplied rectangle-data and
implemented the application of global_alpha to be done on the fly in
get_pixels_argb_internal() on the pixel-data per scaled rectangle. I think this
is reasonable as the need for caching of faded overlays is questionable.

This patch also fixes some issues in the current (now tested ;-) code that
- crash ("double free") for the unscaled-case in
- gst_video_overlay_rectangle_(un)premultiply(): use both the wrong channel for
- set FLAG_PREMULTIPLIED correctly when adding scaled-rects to cache
- evaluate FLAG_PREMULTIPLIED correctly when searching rect-cache
