 Over the past year I've taken over the role of maintaining the ffmpeg
 package for SynoCommunity.  From the repository history there where 2x
 existing patches, relatively similar, for which the name relates to fixes
 for tvheadend under x265 & vaapi:

 With the upgrade from 4.2.3 to 4.3.0 I noticed that the libx265 patch got
 merged upstream in a somewhat similar form to the patch I was keeping
 around from the previous package maintainer, which is a really awesome

 This makes me wonder whether the changes to libavcodec/libx265.c wouldn't
 be appropriate to be merged upstream as well for libavcodec/vaapi_encode.c
 based on the second patch link above on some shaper form?

 Bare with me, I'm not a C coder, although, as the patch doesn't apply
 anymore against version 4.3, I thought it might be a good time to seek for
 advice, hopefully leading to getting "this" fix merged upstream.

 Thnx really much in advance.
