vp8: add codec specific flags for gst intern use.
    Add INVISIBLE and DROPPABLE flags to use it at least for debuging.
    May be some more use cases will be later.

This would *probably* work, but it's a bit dodgy imho. Buffer flags like that are meant for buffer subclasses.

An alternative (though slightly more expensive) way of tagging such buffers would be using the new gst_buffer_set_qdata() API.

Don't know if others have an opinion on what's better.

These patches are for 0.10, could you update them to 0.11/1.0? There these buffer flags already exist in core.
