Currently I manually run a script that tells me "UPDATE ASM.H IN
MPLAYER" whenever the files changes in the FFmpeg master branch. It
would take about the same amount of effort to fix it in the packaging
for Debian or update/ping someone in here.  I don't mind helping for
as long as I work in the Debian packaging which hopefully would be for
a while.

This should also help others since from a quick look:
Arch Linux => just dumps FFmpeg 2.6.2 into their source
Fedora => patches in a static asm.h
Gentoo => Downloads asm.h from FFmpeg master.

Gentoo also downloads

Which are always checked for but I think the information from those
files is only used if using an internal copy of FFmpeg.

Including it or not, either way is fine by me.

In an on topic note. Hopefully the spelling typo patch gets included
if there are no objections. The FFmpeg transition should begin today
so hopefully a mplayer upload should follow soon.
