vo_opengl: angle: add --angle-flip to set the present model
DXGI_SWAP_EFFECT_FLIP_SEQUENTIAL might be buggy on some hardware. Additionaly DXGI_SWAP_EFFECT_FLIP_SEQUENTIAL might be supported on some Windows 7 systems with the platform update, but it might have poor performance. In these cases, the user might want to disable the use of DXGI_SWAP_EFFECT_FLIP_SEQUENTIAL swap chains with --angle-flip=no.
