[PATCH] I2C: new i2c video decoder calls

Attached patch adds three new calls to the i2c video decoder API. The changes
were requested by Michael (CC'ed) and approved by Gerd Knorr (v4l maintainer,

Short explanation:

* INIT is a general initialization call with optional initialization data.
Reason for this is that several i2c decoders (or general: clients) are being
used by several adapters (main drivers), and in some cases, one adapter
simply needs different settings than the other, either because the adapter
is completely different or because the card was reverse engineered in a way
that doesn't allow multiple adapters to run using the same original
initialization data. Michael faces such a problem right now. Both he and
me lack time to properly sit together and work out the exact details or a
proper way to merge.

* VBI_BYPASS and GPIO set specific pins on the decoder. This will be used
in the saa7111 driver. My driver (zr36067, original user of the saa7111
driver) doesn't use any of this, but Michael's does.
