Add maximum commercial skip for manual skipping

When skipping commercials manually, I occassionally skip too long. This happens most often when commercial flagging has missed a commercial break. This is annoying, easy to miss (until the program returns), and painful to recover from.

This patch adds a maximum commercial skip to the configuration options (default to 3600 seconds, effectively infinite).

If the skip is too long, the OSD displays "Too Long 3:34", where 3:34 is the amount it considered skipping (negative if the skip was backwards). Pressing the skip command again (within 3 seconds) will override the option and it'll skip anyway, making it relatively painless to ignore this safety.

(In [9045]) Add a "Maximum Commercial Skip" setting that limits how far a manual commercial skip will skip. If the skip length would be higher than this limit, the user has to hit the SKIP key a second time within 3 seconds. This only applies to manual commercial skip, auto-skip is unaffected. The default is 1-hour, so it shouldn't affect people unless they lower this limit on the settings page. The feature works for both forward and reverse skips. Closes #880 by applying patch.
