[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH 2/3] Provide local copies of avisynth_c.h, avxsynth_c.h, and avxsynth_c.h's requisite headers in compat/avisynth/. The versions of the headers are the same as those provided with x264 for consistency.

It uses swscale as a backend for the resizing functions, that's all
that I know of, anyway.  Unless simply using the libraries can cause
this too.  FFMS2 uses several more of the libraries.

Would composing such a script to test whether it can cause an endless
loop simply require tons of resizer use (or if FFMS2 is also at risk
of it, opening lots of video files in variables - or maybe just one
video in lots of duplicate variables - and then doing operations on
them, e.g. splicing)?
