Description

When using avformat_find_stream_info there is small memory leak. Allocated mutex ain't never released. This very smalla issue since memory lost is about 40 bytes. Tested with 2.2.7 and GIT same both.
Valgrind command was:

valgrind --leak-check=full --show-reachable=yes ./ffprobe /some/where/over/the/rainbow/Screenatorium_-_05_-_The_Answer_Lies.mp3
