 Summary of the bug:

 When using the CQP Rate Control (-c:v mpeg2_vaapi -rc_mode CQP)
 the current implementation only accepts the global_quality to configure
 it. This value is set using the "-q:v" option, but this value isn't in the
 common range 0-31 (in fact, 0.09 corresponds to 10, 0.1 to 11, etc.).

 However, in the H.264 VAAPI encoder (h264_vaapi) the explicit parameter
 "QP" exists. And this value sets the GENERIC VAAPI ENCODER value of
 "explicit_qp". See:


 So, only adding this "-qp" parameter to the MPEG2 VAAPI ENCODER, then it
 will enable the option to use the common 0-31 range with this encoder. In
 fact, a very small of new source lines are required. Just copy&paste!
