 Reproduced with git master,
 Given a patch for new api to destroy mutex.
 But is not very good patch, user will we required to call
 ff_destroy_lock_avcodec function.

 User who are using some older version of ffmpeg can get rid of this leak
 by passing there own
 lock, since problem is in default lock of avcodec.
