 [libopus @ 00000000026ad020] Invalid channel layout 5.1(side) for
 specified mapping family -1.

 Summary of the bug:
 Encode a 5.1 audio file with 5.1(side) channel map
 How to reproduce:
 % ffmpeg -i movie-with-51side.mkv -c:a libopus -b:a 256k output.mkv
 ffmpeg version N-81025-g25ca74d
 built on July 15 2016

 ffmpeg version N-80101-gd970f7b automatically remapped these to the rear
 channels since libopus doesn't seem to allow side channels.  I now have to
 explicitly add:

 -af "channelmap=channel_layout=5.1"

 Not sure if this is expected behavior or not.  Without this channelmap, it
 aborts.  Command-line opusenc automatically remaps as well.
