remove the check from xvmc if you like, but keep in mind that hw decoding
cannot be done without SLICE_FLAG_CODED_ORDER.

if so a patch exporting picture_structure in AVFrame is probably welcome
also setting y of draw_horiz_band() so that y&1 == !!second_field could
be done ...

i faintly remember that this was possible in the distant past when arpi
was still leading mplayer ...
you are sure you dont draw the slices in the wrong pic?

you have to test with field coded mpeg2 of course ...
