Please, don't. It's been months since the last release, and I'm nearing
a point in the merges where a release needs to be branched out before i
can continue (Technically speaking, I'm at a commit I'd rather not have
in 3.4 to being with).

The concerns Michael explained about the opaque_ref wrapping in lavc
with draw_horiz_band apparently also apply to libav, so maybe talk with
the author of the commit you're cherry picking and see if there's a
different solution instead? And with Mark about the wrapped_avframe decoder.
