This change can only break applications that check if packet_size in
AVFormatContext is negative. If you expect that to cause problems in the
wild, you'd need to bump LIBAVFORMAT_VERSION_MAJOR. Do you think it is
worth forcing all applications to be recompiled against this new
libavformat? TBH, I doubt that.

For LIBAVFORMAT_VERSION_MINOR, I see no reason why applications built
against the current libavformat would break when being used with this
new libavformat.
