NTSC closed captioning on saa7134

Please include a patch like this in MythTV. It replaces some hardcoded NTSC closed caption decoder timings with timings calculated from the card's actual VBI sampling rate, much like zvbi does. The rounding I added should make sure the calculations on a bttv card yields the exact same values as were previously used. So it shouldn't have any effect on bttv - but for saa7134, it makes a world of difference. (A world of understanding of what people are saying on TV...)
