lavc: avoid invalid memcpy() in avcodec_default_release_buffer()

When the buf and last pointers are equal, the FFSWAP() results
in an invalid call to memcpy() with same source and destination
on some targets.  Although assigning a struct to itself is valid
C99, gcc does not check for this before calling memcpy().
