Up until now, an AVFilter's lists of input and output AVFilterPads
were terminated by a sentinel and the only way to get the length
of these lists was by using avfilter_pad_count(). This has two
drawbacks: first, sizeof(AVFilterPad) is not negligible
(i.e. 64B on 64bit systems); second, getting the size involves
a function call instead of just reading the data.

This commit therefore changes this. The sentinels are removed and new
private fields nb_inputs and nb_outputs are added to AVFilter that
contain the number of elements of the respective AVFilterPad array.

Given that AVFilter.(in|out)puts are the only arrays of zero-terminated
AVFilterPads an API user has access to (AVFilterContext.(in|out)put_pads
are not zero-terminated and they already have a size field) the argument
to avfilter_pad_count() is always one of these lists, so it just has to
find the filter the list belongs to and read said number. This is slower
than before, but a replacement function that just reads the internal numbers
that users are expected to switch to will be added soon; and furthermore,
avfilter_pad_count() is probably never called in hot loops anyway.

This saves about 49KiB from the binary; notice that these sentinels are
not in .bss despite being zeroed: they are in .data.rel.ro due to the
non-sentinels.

Now using the macro as suggested; furthermore, the commit message has
been updated in light of the fact that these fields are private.

In this file, you are using FF_FILTER_INPUTS and FF_FILTER_OUTPUTS
instead of just FILTER like everywhere else.

I suppose you missed it because it depends on a proprietary operating
system. I do not mind if you break it, but I suppose other would ;-)

LGTM apart from that.

Good catch! This file is indeed special: The first version of this
patchset forgot to update it (because I used a sed that involved *.c and
this is the only filter not covered by it). I later found this out (by
checking the few filters that I don't check automatically manually) and
then added the line manually. And botched it.
