vp9-svc: Fix to the layer buffer settings.

For the case when the number of temporal layers > 1,
the buffer levels (starting/optimal_buffer_level,
and maximum_buffer_size) were not scaled properly.

In vp9_update_layer_context_change_config():
when setting the layer-buffer levels, fix is to scale
the layer-target_bandwidth by the target_bandwidth
(which is the full stream bandwidth) instead of the

This is needed because prior to the call
vp9_update_layer_context_change_config(), set_rc_buffer_sizes()
is called which sets the buffer levels based on target bandwidth
(which is the full bandwidth for the SVC stream).

This fix properly sets the layer-buffer levels based on the
layer-bandwidth, and leads to better rate targeting.

Small/neutral change in avgPSNR/SSIM metrics on RTC set.
