But we should only rely on fields contained in the video filter
buffer, rather than in AVFrame which contains information which can't
be propagated in the filterchain. And the AVFrame <-> A/V filter
buffer mapping can be easily extended by extending

av_vsrc_buffer_add_frame2(ost->input_video_filter, avfilter_get_video_buffer_ref_from_frame(frame, perm), "");
Also I plan to move the sws_param from av_vsrc_buffer_add_frame2() to
the buffer init, which should simplify the interface even more.
