Remove remains of Libav compatibility
Libav seems rather dead: no release for 2 years, no new git commits in master for almost a year (with one exception ~6 months ago). From what I can tell, some developers resigned themselves to the horrifying idea to post patches to ffmpeg-devel instead, while the rest of the developers went on to greener pastures. Libav was a better project than FFmpeg. Unfortunately, FFmpeg won, because it managed to keep the name and website. Libav was pushed more and more into obscurity: while there was initially a big push for Libav, FFmpeg just remained "in place" and visible for most people. FFmpeg was slowly draining all manpower and energy from Libav. A big part of this was that FFmpeg stole code from Libav (regular merges of the entire Libav git tree), making it some sort of Frankenstein mirror of Libav, think decaying zombie with additional legs ("features") nailed to it. "Stealing" surely is the wrong word; I'm just aping the language that some of the FFmpeg members used to use. All that is in the past now, I'm probably the only person left who is annoyed by this, and with this commit I'm putting this decade long problem finally to an end. I just thought I'd express my annoyance about this fucking shitshow one last time. The most intrusive change in this commit is the resample filter, which originally used libavresample. Since the FFmpeg developer refused to enable libavresample by default for drama reasons, and the API was slightly different, so the filter used some big preprocessor mess to make it compatible to libswresample. All that falls away now. The simplification to the build system is also significant.
