This delays the silence_start printing. It can be an issue for real time.
The main motivation behind this filter was originally to detect a silence
issue in live stream. This is why it is important to print the
silence_start ASAP.

BTW, you're not supposed to parse that output, metadata injections are
here for that (use ffprobe). But since some people might be doing this
anyway, you should probably bump micro version in libavfilter/version.h.
