Getting into Libav’s OPW program: initial contributions

Applying to OPW requires an initial contribution. The Libav IRC channel suggested porting the asettb filter from FFmpeg, so I did (version 5 of the patch was merged upstream, in two parts: a rename patch and a content patch; the FFmpeg author was credited as author for the latter, while I did a signed-off-by). I also contributed a 3000+ line documentation patch, standardizing the libavfilter documentation and removing numerous English errors, and triaged a few bugs, git bisecting the one that was reproducible.
