Since when are gcc extensiosn to the C language required by ffmpeg?
alloca is absolutely nonstandard and intentionall omitted from C99 and
POSIX. As far as I know ffmpeg already uses and requires C99/gcc VLAs
in various places. If not, and if you don't want to introduce this
dependency, then you should use av_malloc but never alloca.
