this is my very first message to this list, so first of all: thank you for your huge work!

Now, to the issue: I made this patch for libavcodec/qsvenc.c in order to honor the GopOptFlag flag for hevc_qsv encodings (maybe others will be affected though).
In statement 513 (the third fix) a wrong value was assigned in case of not-closed-gop. Zero is not an allowed value, as the enum mfx.GopOptFlag refers to uses only 1 and 2. What the encoding engine will do when feeded with a non-valid value is unpredictable.
Then, in statements 148 and 150 I changed those 'if' replacing '&' with '==' because of the enum, which is different from a bitmask.

Apart from those, it sound to me quite suspicious having to set -flags 0 in my command line in order NOT to get closed gops, as the default is a closed gop (I see weird having this as default).
Further, I usually avoid using a signed 'int' for a flag field, which needs to be handled with bitmasks, so into libavcodec/avcodec.h I would change those 'int flags;' and 'int flags2;' using unsigned instead; unless, of course, there are solid reasons to have them defined this way.
