Reverting big commits to fix one sample and making future merges
harder or impossible seems not like the best option, unless it can be
shown that the entire change is flawed, and not just a small bug.
Otherwise, it should be attempted to fix regressions the usual way -
by fixing things, not reverting.

Once reverted, the change will never come back, we all know that.

At least thats IMHO. You are the maintainer of the H264 decoder, so if
you want to revert it, feel free.
