This rewrites msac.c to the point of there being no libaom project code left, hence changing the license of the file to the dav1d project's license. The rewrite much simplifies and optimizes entropy decoding. Some encoder specific code also remained, such as tell_offs, to tell the fractional amount of bits left, which the decoder does not need. ctx_refill is much simpler and has a tighter loop with less instructions, which on some CPUs can actually be ran in one cycle. The old mechanism which checked to see if the buffer reached the end to disable calling ctx_refill is gone, as all it saved was a mostly well predicted branch. The optimizations regarading this function enabled us to use an ec_win of 64 bits whilst improving performance. This was not possible with the old needlessly robust system. Some msac-specific API changes were made - msac_decode_bool now takes a scaled value directly rather than doing scaling itself. This saves a shift in most use cases as the function is mainly used to read equiprobable bools rather than ones with specific probabilities. There's still room for optimizations, mainly in that update_cdf could be SIMD'd. This commit prepares for some of them by moving the init function at the bottom of the file. Overall decoder speedup seems to be around 3%-5%, specific on bitrate and encoder as expected.
