I really don't think it makes any sense in this case, since it is expected
that the av_opt_get will fail on non-http io contexts. It doesn't matter if
the failure is due to AVERROR_OPTION_NOT_FOUND or AVERROR(ENOMEM). The only
thing that matters is whether http_version_opt is set or remains NULL.

Anyway, I don't feel strongly about this. If you think the extra
instructions to store and compare the return value make this code cleaner
or more secure, so be it. I will send a patch with the requested changes.
