This was caused by this commit:

commit 8400b126acb153329c418433c377d96afd1d1e02

    avcodec: deprecate AVFrame.age
    This was intended as an optimisation for skipped blocks in MPEG2
    P-frames and never used elsewhere.  Removing this "optimisation"
    speeds up MPEG2 decoding by 1-2% (ARM Cortex-A9).

I'd say it obviously must be buggy, because according to the commit message
it should not be possible for it to change any results.
It contains far too many non-trivial changes for me to guess what exactly
is wrong, so if someone could review it that would be welcome.
