Prevent severe rate control errors in CBR mode

In rare cases, the interaction between rate correction factor and Q
choices may cause severe oscillating frame sizes that are way off
target bandwidth. This commit adds tracking of rate control results
for last two frames, and use the information to prevent oscillating
Q choices.
