jacosub: deadlock with fuzzed file

I found a deadlock in mpv with fuzzed file. The problem appears to be in ffmpeg so I report it here directly.

jacosub_read_header() in ffmpeg/libavformat/jacosubdec.c:156 will continuesly call ff_get_line() as long as eof isn't reached.

When ff_get_line() reads a \r it tries to remove the following \n if it exists. If eof is triggered after the first read the next read will return 0 which is not a \n and the stream is rewound one byte and the eof flag is cleared. This puts the stream in the same state as before and jacosub_read_header() loops indefinitely.

int ff_get_line(AVIOContext *s, char *buf, int maxlen) ffmpeg/libavformat/aviobuf.c:669
    int i = 0;
    char c;

    do {
        c = avio_r8(s);                     <--- last byte read in stream (\r)
        if (c && i < maxlen-1)
            buf[i++] = c;
    } while (c != '\n' && c != '\r' && c);
    if (c == '\r' && avio_r8(s) != '\n')    <--- trigger EOF and returns 0
        avio_skip(s, -1);                   <--- rewinds and clears eof_reached flag

    buf[i] = 0;
    return i;

And please do not compress, encrypt or encode the input sample, simply attach it.
