Remove the pdiff_lut_scale in nlmeans and increase weight_lut table size
from 2^9 to 500000, this change will avoid using pdiff_lut_scale in
nlmeans_slice() for weight_lut table search, improving the performance
by about 12%. (in 1080P size picture case).

Use the profiling command like:

perf stat -a -d -r 5 ./ffmpeg -i input -an -vf nlmeans=s=30 -vframes 10 \
-f null /dev/null

without this change:
when s=1.0(default value) 63s
     s=30.0               72s

after this change:
     s=1.0(default value) 56s
     s=30.0               63s
