Seems like the only thing we actually need to rename is the cuvid.c
source file. I can keep the current rename, or rename the new Libav
one, whatever you prefer.

The AVHWAccels for the FFmpeg cuvid decoders can be removed as soon as
Mark Thompsons patches here get in:

There doesn't actually need to be a separate configure switch for the
cuvid hwaccel, and --enable-cuvid would enable both. A user can
explicitly enable or disable the individual hwaccels and decoders to
get fine control. So there's no name conflict either as soon as the
fake AVHWAccels go.
