Most certainly a *bad* thing IMO.

Applied, built and tested just fine on my side.

Only minor comment would be to consider writing a macro around this to
avoid duplicating the code.

#define MP_safe_av_undef(av)

Or something like that.

For bonus points, only enable the workaround for affected versions of perl
and fallback to the original av_undef() otherwise.
