[flac-dev] PATCH: match calls and returns

According to Agner Fog, "...you must make sure that all calls
are matched with returns. Never jump out of a subroutine without
a return and never use a return as an indirect jump."

(see paragraph 3.15 in microarchitecture.pdf and
examples 3.5a and 3.5b in optimizing_assembly.pdf)

Basically this patch replaces
		call	.get_eip0
		pop	eax


		call	.mov_eip_to_eax


		mov eax, [esp]
