Default Framebuffer notification. (Core and Video Plugin)

Mupen64 does something along these lines which enables the emulation of certain status updates (Kirby 64), it may benefit pokemon snap and other titles that have some unemulated framebuffer effects as well.

Plugins would also have to be updated to accept framebuffer changes from the core.

This could be an advanced option and only enabled for games that benefit from it.

In N64 emulation, this allowed many CPU based framebuffer effects to have ZERO framerate hit.
