If I pass the two bytes in an int, the bytes are in wrong order either
on little- or on big-endian machines. I supposed the performance to be a
bit better if the bytes are always in the right order. I expected gcc to
emit a 16-bit compare instruction, which it (looking at the assembly)
didn't do.

I tried to be more tricky. I'm using AV_RN16 to get the two bytes from
the stream in machine byte order (in the expectation that this is faster
than forcing little- or big-endian) and le2me_16('I' | ('D' << 8)) to
create the ID constant in machine byte order. This really gets a 16-bit
compare instruction on x86_64, and I hope on many other architecture,
