Specify configuration for Low, Middle, High and Ultra High Quality of SBC
codec. SBC codec in Ultra High Quality has higher quality than aptX.

Automatic Quality mode matches configuration of SBC codec which was used
before this change. Which means that it accept configuration between Low
and High quality.

Current SBC code was extended to allow definitions of arbitrary
configuration variants of SBC codec parameters.
