I can confirm that the reason you "need" -ffat-lto-objects is that you
are not actually building with lto.

The sad thing is that the optimized h264 cabac reader cannot be
compiled with (static) lto. I don't remember the details atm but I
suspect you have to disable this optimization in the source code to
use lto, it may be better performance-wise to not use lto at all
(depending on your exact needs).

This bug cannot be worked around with -ffat-lto-objects (you would
see the same issue I do if you would actually compile with lto).
