Add comments regarding AVFMG_FLAG_NONBLOCK usage with muxers.
Add assert forbiding use of nonblocking muxer with

Signed-off-by: Jan Sebechlebsky <sebechlebskyjan@gmail.com>
 Changes since the last version of the patch:
 - added assert to the beginning of av_interleaved_write_frame ensuring
   it is not called with muxer in nonblocking mode.
 - Changed commit description.
