[MPlayer-DOCS] [PATCH] remove '(pass 1/2)'

Some users were confused about lavcopts marked as '(pass 1/2)' in the
man page:

>> 5.  Are all of the options that are noted with (pass 1/2) in the man
>> disabled if you include them in the second pass? Or can they be
>> detrimental if you include them on a second pass?
> Generally it's safest (though slow) if pass 2 uses exactly the same
> parameters as pass 1. Using different parameters can (depending on the
> parameters) result in inexact statistics.
> I'm not sure what (pass 1/2) means - perhaps it's something to do with
> pass=3 encodings. Pass=3 works differently, perhaps it just doesn't
> need/use the parameters marked (pass 1/2)? Anybody know?

I can see why they were confused. I think the '(pass 1/2)' marks should
just be removed.

* actually, those options work with pass 1/2/3/4/5...
* it's a natural assumption that options work with all passes unless
  marked otherwise
* only a few of those options are currently marked '(pass 1/2)' right
  now anyway

Any objections?
