Remove rate component adjustment for AQ1

In AQ1 a rate adjustment was applied for blocks coded with a
deltaq. This tends to skew the partition selection and cause
rate overshoot.

For example, consider a 64x64 super block where some but not all
sub blocks are in a low q segment and some are in a high q segment.
The choice of Q when considering large partition and transform sizes
is defined by the lowest sub block segment id (currently this implies the
lowest Q). If some parts of the larger partition are very hard this will
cause a high rate component.

The correct behavior here is for the rd code to discard the large partition
choice and break down to sub blocks where some have low and some
have high Q.  However the rate correction factor above mask the high
cost of coding at a larger partition size.
