I'm fed up of people who think their poney is more important and can
ignore stable/freeze.

There is little to no point in backporting Qt5 patches when VLC 2.1 does
_not_ support Qt5 anyway. That kind of changes should not be backported
until it is complete (if at all). Indeed it is highly probably that Qt5
won't be possible without regressions and without non-compatible changes.
But hey, this would have been pointed out if it had been discussed.

Besides, this push broke hardware acceleration. Good job on pushing stuff
without testing and not reading the commit logs correctly.
