Patch to shorten __FILE__ on all platforms.

On WIN32 the file argument to gst_debug_log_valist is shortened to represent
just the filename. This is useful not only for MSVC, but also with gcc/Linux
when doing cross-compilation builds and out-of-tree builds.

The attached patch removes the OS check for WIN32 so that the logs are more
legible on all platforms. For example:

0:00:00.294828704 13842   0x53cf20 DEBUG               avidemux
AVI: reset


0:00:02.439104406 17590   0x5c8720 DEBUG               avidemux
gstavidemux.c:253:gst_avi_demux_reset: AVI: reset

This also saves a serious amount of bandwidth when debugging target systems
over a serial console.
