Now i see i was wrong about the difference. But still, for the
interest of others, I'll provide HTTP MJPEG streaming example script.

Chromium browser doesn't playback produced HTTP MJPEG stream by direct
URL, but it plays it fine the stream referenced from <img> tag on HTML
page. That may be what caused my confusion. Firefox plays the produced
streams by direct URL. All above doesn't depend on FFmpeg being
patched with this patch.
However, I have upgraded a lot of packages on my PC yesterday, so
Chromium could get upgraded, causing behaviour change.
Also maybe the script is somewhat incorrect, and Chromium actually
plays (correct) streams by direct URLs.
If you're interested to test your browser, feel free to try

Still the patch slightly improves things - now the reliable "start
marker" can be longer (see in script).
