vo_opengl: support embedded ICC profiles
This currently only works when using lcms-based color management (--icc-profile-*). In principle, we could also support using lcms even when the user has not specified an ICC profile, by generating the profile against a fixed reference (--target-prim/--target-trc) instead. I still might do that some day, simply because 3dlut provides a higher quality conversion than our simple gamut mapping does for stuff like BT.2020, and also because it's now needed to enable embedded ICC profiles. But that would be a separate change, so preserve the status quo for now. (Besides, my opinion is still that you should be using an ICC profile if you care about colors being accurate _at all_)
