lavf: Add system to seperate relative timestamps from absolute ones.

With this we can always know if a timestamp is based on added durations
from an unknown origin or if it is based on a correct timestamp (and possibly
added durations)
This should fix some bugs where this distinction was mixed up.

Basically, RELATIVE_TS_BASE is the zero point for relative timestamp.
Relative timestamp is in range of (RELATIVE_TS_BASE - 2^48, RELATIVE_TS_BASE + 2^48).
