Well that was embarrassing, thanks for pointing it out.

The issue was that I had introduced metacodec_class that was shared 
between ff_meta_encoder and ff_meta_decoder, and due to this sharing 
av_opt_child_class_next was never able to get pass them as it 
automatically returned to the same metacodec_class on every iteration.

As it seems the metacodec_class was useless in the first place, I opted 
to remove it. make fate now doesn't hang, but I discovered uhm issues 
with some of the other patches that will be fixed in v2.

I'll be sure to ensure make fate passes all my next patches. Thanks.
