Patch updating DEFAULT_DONT_COMPRESS suffix list

I'd like to suggest updating rsync's DEFAULT_DONT_COMPRESS list of file
suffixes to include the following additional archive and multimedia filetypes.

Several additions reflect the existence of new or more widely used compressed
filetypes since the last update >7 years ago, others provide alternate suffixes
for existing supported filetypes.


.aac (raw AAC)
.flac (FLAC)
.m1a, .m2a, .mp1, .mp2, .mpa (MPEG audio)
.m4a, .m4b, .m4p, .m4r, .m4v (Apple AAC)
.opus (Opus)
.spx, (Speex)


.m1v, .m2v, .mpeg, .mpg, .mpv (MPEG video)
.qt (Apple Quicktime, additional to .mov)

Multimedia containers

.3g2, .3gp (3GPP)
.f4v, .flv, (Flash)
.m2ts (Blu-ray)
.mka, .mkv (Matroska)
.oga, .ogm, .ogv, .ogx (Ogg, additional to .ogg)
.ts (MPEG Transport Stream)
.webm (Google WebM)


.webp (Google WebP)


.apk (Android Package Kit, extended from .jar/.zip)
.dmg (Apple OS X Disk Image)
.ear, .jar, .war (Java archives, extended from .zip)
.lrz (lrzip)
.rz (rzip's default extension, additional to .rzip)
.sz (Google Snappy)
.tbz2 (tar+bzip2, additional to .tbz)
.Z, (compress)

Note that the .VOB and .MTS suffixes are intentionally uppercased, due to the
filesystems used in DVD and AVCHD media.

The attached patch adds these filetypes to loadparm.c and also documents them
in rsync.yo.
