Other functions in FFmpeg already rely on the "extern declaration in
header + inline definition in one file" method to work with both
compliant compilers and old GCC versions, for example ff_get_mb_score
and ff_idct_xvid_sse2. That doesn't seem to be causing any problems. So
I think there was little reason to add the renaming and indirection
