[libav-devel] Indeo4 B-frames decoding support

Here is my patch for decoding B-frames in Indeo4 at last. And another
patch to make things a bit simpler first.

I suppose I have to give some explanation what I did here and why.

First of all, every band has three buffers—current, reference and one
for scalability. I had to add the fourth buffer for the second
reference and change Indeo4 switch_buffers function to handle the
second reference frame.

Second, I had to add the second motion vector to the block
information. I chose a new name for it in order to have less impact on
existing code, since making mv_x and mv_y arrays would lead to more
changes in all places and more possible errors.

Third, I had to extend ivi_mc function to handle B-frames and add some
new functions for bidirectional motion compensation. Motion types are
distinguished by mc_type and mc_type2 variables. Normally they should
contain fractional offset for the motion compensation but I overloaded
it so -1 means no motion vector at all.

I've tested it on various Indeo4 and Indeo5 samples and it doesn't
seem to break anything.
