computation overflow in HM reference C model

We may have found a bug in the HM model. There is a mismatch between the written specification and HM reference C model.

Dec 2016 Spec: Decoding process for palette mode

HM code version : HM-16.15+SCM-8.5
Function : TDecCu::xDecodePaletteTexture() in TDecCu.cpp
The problem equation happens in both clauses of an if-else statement.
The overflow happens in tmpVal, which is used to store the inverse quantized palette escape values in (8-77).
tmpVal is then clipped according to (8-78) to generate the reconstructed samples.
levelScale <= 72 (7-bit).

In SCM, tmpVal is of type “Pel”. So, once we changed Pixel from Short to Int the overflow was fixed.

It is a high bit depth problem, most likely only happen when pixel depth is > 8-bit.
