Well, the meaning of those fields is explained in the spec, and the
name itself has been chosen so it's short enough to not have lines
exceeding 80 chars while still keeping the number of lines used for the
cabac_table[] definition acceptable. But, I'm open to any other
suggestion.

It's not, we have holes in the middle, hence the explicit indexing. I
also tried to have something as close as possible to the spec, so
people can easily see where it comes from.

That's exactly why I used explicit indexing: I want specific portions
of the table to be 0-filled :-).

I can't switch the array order since the HW expects things to be
organized this way (that table is directly copied to a memory region
that's passed to the HW).
