Thank you Thomas for the reviews and support!

The proposed actions, by Nicolas George in
https://ffmpeg.org/pipermail/ffmpeg-devel/2017-December/223072.html, were

>* Can one simply change the tinterlace from GPL to LGPL?
Of course not. There are two non-simple courses of action to achieve it:

- Get the approval of all copyright holders. It has been done in the
  past for other filters.

- Remove the GPL tinterlace and at the same time add a new LGPL filter
  that does the same thing and is also called tinterlace.

Only two contributors approved until now, Thomas Mundt and Stefano
Sebatini, while Baptiste Coudurier and Michael Zucchi could not be reached.
Also, the new implementation supports all the features from the old
tinterlace and conditionally (at compile time) the same ASM optimizations
are used, but only if CONFIG_GPL is defined.

Is there any way we can proceed with this patch?

Best regards.
