[vdr] Getting rid of FW_NEEDS_BUFFER_RESERVE_FOR_AC3

In recent versions of the firmware for FF DVB cards
(actually IIRC since mid 2005) Werner Fink has greatly
improved syncing audio and video in AC3 mode. Therefore
the "buffer reserve" in cTransfer::Action() should no
longer be necessary.

I'd like to get rid of this stuff entirely, so if there's
anybody who has a reason why this should still be left in
there, please speak up.

For a quick test it is sufficient to add the line

   bool GotBufferReserve = false;
   GotBufferReserve = true;//XXX

(marked with XXX) in transfer.c.
