This commit reuses the configuration options for VP8 that enables
temporal scalability for VP9. It also adds a way to enable three
preset temporal structures (refer to the documentation for more
detail) that can be used in offline encoding.

align this with the '(' here and below.

my point with the earlier comment was that you document 3 indices, but
set 4. if [3] won't be used in this case then the assignment could be
removed.

it's not common in this code base to mark non-pointer parameters
const. you can merge the first and second lines and the third and
fourth since they're not overly long.

indent is incorrect, it should be 4 spaces.

[WJ] Not sure why this was sent this way, as the lines were on the same
line in the commit. Maybe lint code running?
I will make the change to get around that.

[WJ] the ids[] and layer_flags[] are indexed up to the frame# in
ts_periodicity..
so that goes from 0-3 (period of 4), whereas ts_rate_decimator[] is indexed
by the temporal layer id itself (ids[]) which goes from 0 to 2. Am I
missing something?

Maybe I am. I took 0=L, 1=GF, 2=ARF to be comments about the indices
and was wondering why 3 wasn't documented or whether it was needed.
