Iam not sure its a API break,
Currently if the layout is 0 or mismatching the channel count the
behavior is undefined. 
If we define that channel layout = 0 is allowed then this would only
add a definition where none was before.

but i may be missing something

Breaking DRM is a little like attempting to break through a door even
though the window is wide open and the only thing in the house is a bunch
of things you dont want and which you would get tomorrow for free anyway
