This seems rather noisy and doesn't really solve anything, does it?
Decoders still need to validate values instead of blindly trusting
them, and this just hides some problems in these decoders, instead of
fixing them there. API users of avcodec would not fill
AVCodecParameters, they would fill a codec context directly.
