vf_vavpp: select best quality deinterlacing algorithm by default
This switches the default away from "bob" to the best algorithm reported as supported by the driver. This is convenient for users, and there is no reason to use something worse by default. Untested.

certain unreliable video metadata. Also flip the defaults of all builtin
HW deinterlace filters to always deinterlace.
