[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH] libavcodec/mpeg12dec: Use atomic addition for value updated in multiple threads.

I initially discovered a signed integer overflow on this line. Since
this value is updated in multiple threads, I use an atomic update and
as it happens atomic addition is defined to wrap around. However,
there's still a potential bug in that the error_count may wrap around
and equal zero again causing problems down the line.
