I agree. Those are real warnings ! We shouldn't hide them.
And ideally, we should fix them properly.

That could be a good way to solve those warnings.
The other obvious and ugly solution would be to allocate and copy in
the output buffer, even when the bitstream is already formated and
don't need to be changed. But if we can avoid resorting to such an
extra useless copy, that would be better.
