   m and f are probably redundant. The correct behaviour for fullscreen
is to maximize, the SDL plugin should be modified. Note that the x11 and
xvideo plugins correctly maximize when going fullscreen.

   By the way, it only works if p_intf->p_input != NULL, but a few
functions don't require p_input to be non-null. Maybe you should do
something here.
