Substantial restructuring of AQ mode 2.

The restructure moves the decision into the rd pick
modes loop and makes a decision based at the 16x16
block level instead of only the 64x64 level.

This gives finer granularity and better visual results
on the clips I have tested. Metrics results are worse
than the old AQ2 especially for PSNR and this mode
now falls between AQ0 and AQ1 in terms of visual
impact and metrics results.

Further tuning of this to follow.

It should be noted that if there are multiple iterations
of the recode loop the segment for a MB could change
in each loop if the previous loop causes a change in the
complexity / variance bin of the block. Also where a block
gets a delta Q this will alter the rd multiplier for this block
in subsequent recode iterations and frames where the
segmentation is applied.
