Hi, maybe it's a good idea to address Diego's coding style comment, resubmit
an updated patch and see what happens next?
It would be also nice if you could try benchmarking the overhead of blanking
prevention code with different settings for heartbeat period and provide some
numbers (probably using mplayer '-benchmark' combined with '-framedrop'
or '-hardframedrop' options when trying to watch some heavy video and measure
the number of dropped frames).
