 On FFmpeg version 4.1.3 (as distributed by Debian), on a system with 144
 CPU threads, trying to encode any media as AV1 fails with the message
 "[libaom-av1 @ 0x137013140]   Additional information: g_threads out of
 range [..64]". I've attached the verbose log if you'd like to see it.

 It seems this has already been fixed in
 this commit], but that patch is only in git master, so the issue still
 exists in the stable version.

 Would it be possible for this patch to be applied to the 4.1 branch?

 Also, other than building FFmpeg myself, is there any way I can work
 around this issue? e.g., is there a "limit max CPUs" option I can set
