The question was referring to the new decision to get rid of 
PIX_FMT_HWACCEL_CODEC. This is independant from the current patchsets and 
the problem did exist before.

Not at all, but sorry if porting (VDPAU, VAAPI) and especially regtesting 
among all codecs (MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.263, H.264, WMV3, VC-1) does not take 
zero time.

The only objection I have is to name something a2b and using a "c" to 
achieve the operation. Otherwise, it works and actually helps implementing 
surface bits readback.
