Description Vineeth 2015-06-29 01:59:24 UTC
while running make check in Gstreamer plugins, it fails
 with below error
 sizeof(GstDirectControlBinding) is 152, expected 148
 This is because, gboolean want_absolute; is added in
 GstDirectControlBinding, and the same was not updated in ABI check

Thanks for the report, this should fix it:

update abi check structure

This is not the right fix, the point of checking the structure sizes is that the size shouldn't change. The way GObject works, with nested structures, means that if the size of a subclassable object structure changes, this breaks ABI for all subclasses.
