Well, the code in process_subframe_() calculates MAX value of qlp_coeff_precision,
while the code in evaluate_lpc_subframe_() adjusts CURRENT qlp_coeff_precision.

It's possible to move the logic from evaluate_lpc_subframe_() into
process_subframe_(), see the attached patch, but I'm not sure that the
code becomes much clearer after it.
