> [PATCH] FIX sub filter dead lock issue -- a recently occured dead lock issue
> A dead lock was created when adding an spu filter (like marq)
> because the same mutex was used for spu->p stuff and sub filter
> chain (p_spu->p->p_chain). A new mutex was added for to update
> the filter chain.
> Maybe in the future the subfiltercallback code will just update a
> string and the real filter update would take place in the vout
> code (just like video filter). Then this mutext should only
> lock that string and remove it from spu_SortSubPictures.
> PS: This is part of of a 4 patch pack. Please, i'd like all these patches comited or give a good rejection reason.
