avformat_alloc_input_context function analogous to
avformat_alloc_output_context2, except that it does not take a filename
argument as guessing the format by just the filename does not make sense.
avformat_alloc_input_context can be used e.g. with the avdevice
capabilities API, which needs an allocated input format with priv_data
(and default options) set, but device should not be opened.

Added some checks to avformat_open_input, for the case that a
AVFormatContext* allocated by avformat_alloc_input_context is provided:
1.  if avformat_open_input's AVInputFormat *fmt argument is not NULL,
    clean up any already set s->iformat
2.  if s->url is already set and avformat_open_input's filename argument
    is not NULL, free current url and replace by provided filename
3.  if s->url is already set and avformat_open_input's filename argument
    is NULL, do not set s->url to "", but keep current url
4.  if s->priv_data has already been allocated, do not do so again.
4b. do reset options to default and apply provided options (if any)
5.  add 4b to docs of avformat_open_input

Bumping avformat version.
