It appears that this mail was unclear, I am sorry 
about it, I am not a native speaker!

Let me try again:
You reported a bug [1] that cannot easily be reproduced - 
a buggy toolchain appears to be necessary. Less than four 
hours after your report, a patch was posted that is 
intended to fix this bug and a message was sent to this 
mailing list to ask if the patch fixes your compilation 
problem: [2].
Four days later, I asked again for a test: [3]

Please understand that it is neither necessary to report 
this problem on another mailing list (it is actually not 
a good idea, reporting bugs here is 100% ok), nor is it 
necessary to explain why you have to use this toolchain 
(we do try to support slightly broken environments, but 
please understand that we need some help on these). Is it 
also not really a good idea to explain to the FFmpeg 
developers about performance issues and non-issues, it 
is safe to assume that there are not many projects that 
are more performance-driven than FFmpeg.

As said, what is needed is somebody to test if the 
patch fixes the reported problem.

Please disregard this email if you are not interested 
anymore in fixing this bug.

Thank you for your support, Carl Eugen
