Owner: changed from Antoine Martin to alas

This change allows other python threads to get on with things whilst we are compressing or decompressing lz4 data.

I've made some beta builds with this change applied and version bump for the specfile r11612.

@afarr / smo: this is mostly a FYI, unless you have test systems you can use to see how much a difference this makes (only comparing with rgb+lz4 mode, where the difference in performance is most likely to be spotted). If not, we'll just have to assume that it was worthwhile - re-assign to me and I'll push to stable before the 0.17 release.

Resolution: fixed

Finally getting around to closing this. I chatted with Smo and he says it's likely we already use the patch.

Anyways, this is long overdue for a closure. Noted. Closing.
