Patch that allows use of blank FMP4 decoder based if enabled in preferences, even if no other FMP4 backend exists.

When neither WMF or FFMPEG are backends are built but FMP4 is configured, the blank decoder is not available. This is because there is no case to handle FMP4 generically in content/media/DecoderTraits.cpp, CanHandleMediaType.
Attached is a patch that checks if the blank decoder is enabled in preferences in case no other FMP4 backends exists but FMP4 is still exposed by preference.

I don't think we need this. We've got people working on PDMs for all platforms we care about.
