Then it needs to be patched to revert these commits, or parts of them. It
shall be noted that it is NOT necessary to use their "DLL loader"
(presumably a cross-platform wrapper around dlopen) to load FFmpeg (the main
stuff they removed), it is enough to link the system shared library
directly. So the actual CODE does not need to be any different than for
static linking, only the build setup needs to link the shared library.
