OK.

Uhm no the original code was missing any validation check. The best
course would be to get your av_opt* changes and use them so we don't
need these clumsy checks all over the place.

BTW we discussed over IRC and came to the conclusion that we should
rely on DSPUtil so we don't duplicate code and optims which are
already implemented (for several archs) in lavc.
