The proposed patch is not in any way a good solution to such a problem, since
it will hide the real cause of it and should in theory never be necessary for a
well written pipeline, however it can be thought of as a "security vent",
making sure that there is SOME limit to how big the jitterbuffer can grow, and
the sort of extra protection an application might want.
The idea is that you set a time (in ms) how late a buffer can be before it gets
