Moved the defs to avcodec.h

I didn't changed the values, only added some more.
Sane code should check for <0 anyway so should work unchanged.
I actually expect lots of unattended crashes in VLC in BeOS to disapear 
with this fix :D
There are lots or return -1 still, but that's not a problem.

I originally wrote a func for that, but there were only 2...
Did a static func in avcodec.h
Also added av_errno_from_averror() for apps to convert to something 
others can use or print with strerror().

Btw, I checked what opengroup says about errno...
All pages only state errors are non-zero, then on the page for errno.h 
it states they are supposed to be positive, but they changed that to 
comply with some C99 thingy... So originally they weren't supposed to 
be positive.
There is no way to revert that in BeOS anyway, whatever CNNNN says.
Besides it's way more logical if you think about it.
