More specifically, about this patch: http://git.xiph.org/?p=flac.git;a=commitdiff;h=70b078cfd5f9d4b0692c33f018cac3c652b14f90

I downloaded the latest code from git (flac-70b078c), disabled
all SSE optimizations in the code and compiled it (GCC 4.8.2).
This patch doesn't change FLAC output.

Either gcc is too smart and optimizes this new code back to the old,
or this fix is MSVS-specific. Or both.
