Yes, it is fixed in the second patch. But it is still needed after that.
Current versions of libavformat link directly to this symbol, and if the
libavutil shared library is updated to a version without the symbol, the
older libavformat will fail to load. So for distributions shipping libav*
in separate packages, this is a must, unless we want them to always
enforce all libav* from the exactly same build...
