[PATCH v10 6/9] media: uapi: Add a control for HANTRO driver

The HEVC HANTRO driver needs to know the number of bits to skip at
the beginning of the slice header.
That is a hardware specific requirement so create a dedicated control
for this purpose.

+Hantro video decoder driver
+===========================
+
+The Hantro video decoder driver implements the following driver-specific controls:
+
+``V4L2_CID_HANTRO_HEVC_SLICE_HEADER_SKIP (integer)``
+    Specifies to Hantro HEVC video decoder driver the number of data (in bits) to
+    skip in the slice segment header.
+    If non-IDR, the bits to be skipped go from syntax element "pic_output_flag"
+    to before syntax element "slice_temporal_mvp_enabled_flag".
+    If IDR, the skipped bits are just "pic_output_flag"
+    (separate_colour_plane_flag is not supported).
+
+.. note::
+
+        This control is not yet part of the public kernel API and
+        it is expected to change.
