From: Lad, Prabhakar <prabhakar.lad@ti.com>

add V4L2_CID_DPCM_PREDICTOR control of type menu, which
determines the dpcm predictor. The predictor can be either
simple or advanced.

This patches has one checkpatch warning for line over
80 characters altough it can be avoided I have kept it
for consistency.

Changes for v3:
1: Added better explanation for DPCM, pointed by Hans.

Changes for v2:
1: Added documentaion in controls.xml pointed by Sylwester.
2: Chnaged V4L2_DPCM_PREDICTOR_ADVANCE to V4L2_DPCM_PREDICTOR_ADVANCED
   pointed by Sakari.
