    Merge libavcore into libavutil

    It is pretty hopeless that other considerable projects will adopt
    libavutil alone in other projects. Projects that need small footprint
    are better off with more specialized libraries such as gnulib or rather
    just copy the necessary parts that they need. With this in mind, nobody
    is helped by having libavutil and libavcore split. In order to ease
    maintenance inside and around FFmpeg and to reduce confusion where to
    put common code, avcore's functionality is merged (back) to avutil.

Rewriting code that is poorly written but fully understood is good.
Rewriting code that one doesnt understand is a sign that one is less smart
then the original author, trying to rewrite it will not make it better.
