The "replace with previous known good value" approach is only
recommended if you do it on a field-by-field basis (e.g. detect error in
LSPs, keep last LSP value, use newer values for the rest). If your CRC
is only at the frame level, you should consider the frame lost and use
the LPC instead (passing NULL to speex_decode).
