New encoder control IDs added:
- AV1E_SET_ENABLE_DIAGONAL_INTRA: Enable diagonal (D45 to D203) intra
prediction modes (0: false, 1: true (default)). Also available as
"enable-diagonal-intra" for the aom_codec_set_option() function.

New aom_tune_metric enum value: AOM_TUNE_BUTTERAUGLI. The new aomenc option
--tune=butteraugli was added to optimize the encoder’s perceptual quality by
optimizing the Butteraugli metric. Install libjxl (JPEG XL) and then pass
-DCONFIG_TUNE_BUTTERAUGLI=1 to the cmake command to enable it.

Addition of support for libvmaf 2.x.
