[MPlayer-dev-eng] [PATCH v2 5/5] stream_pvr: allow initial latency when opening stream




When opening an hdpvr device, there may be a significant delay before
first receiving data, especially at higher bitrates. This can cause
mplayer to time out and exit.

Move the existing device polling code to a static function. Use a
generous 5 second timeout for the first read of the stream.

v2:
 * Add "Waiting for stream to begin..." message.
 * Instead of adding a new poll in pvr_stream_open, use a longer timeout for 
   the first poll pvr_stream_read does.
 * Return -1 on poll timeout.
