Misleading log message for -b:a option

Reported by: tmatth Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: ffmpeg
Version: git-master Keywords:
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no

Description

Summary of the bug:

When using the -b:a option, ffmpeg logs report "Applying option b:a (video bitrate (please use -b:v)) with argument 160k."
It seems like this option is not actually interpreted as the video bitrate, but the message is misleading.
Using the deprecated -ab option yields an expected message, "Applying option ab (audio bitrate (please use -b:a)) with argument 160k."

How to reproduce:

% ffmpeg -y -loglevel trace -f lavfi -t 1 -i anullsrc -c:a libopus -b:a 160k -c copy -f nut /dev/null
