FFmpeg should exit with non-zero exit code when an error happens with -xerror

Description

Summary of the bug:

When -xerror is used and an error occurs, FFmpeg does not always exit with a non-zero exit code, making it difficult for scripts to tell if there was an error.

How to reproduce:

Any file with errors works, but I deleted random bytes from the beginning of a JPEG image to test.

$ ffmpeg -xerror -v error -i brokenfile.jpg -f null -
[mjpeg @ 0000000002545460] error count: 64
[mjpeg @ 0000000002545460] error y=1 x=3
$ echo "$?"
0
