avpicture_get_size() returns the size needed for the memory buffer, that
includes a palette even for GRAY8.
And I thought we had agreed that -f rawvideo should not write a palette
for GRAY8.
rawdec.c needs to be fixed as well, but the code simply makes no sense
to me, it requires a palette in the input data for e.g. GRAY8 but not
for PAL8, it does copy a palette for PAL8, but leaves the palette
completely uninitialized for anything else.
