Move the probe loop from av_open_input_file() into its own method
av_probe_input_buffer() so that it can be reused. Here are a few
differences to the original way things were probed:
- maximum probe buffer size can be specified as a parameter.
- offset within the stream to probe from can be specified as a parameter.
- instead of seeking back to the start each time a probe fails, stream
data is appended to the reallocated buffer. This lowers the amount
of data read from the stream (there is no repetition) and results in
fewer closed and reopened streams (when seeking fails).
New attempt after r22296, which was revert in r22315 due to a FATE
