Currently, it also tests whether extended_data points to something
different than the AVFrame's data array and frees extended_data
if it is different. Yet this is only necessary for one of its three
callers, namely av_frame_unref(); meanwhile the other two callers
took measures to avoid this (or rather, to make it to an av_free(NULL)).

This commit moves this chunk to av_frame_unref() (so that
get_frame_defaults() now treats its input as uninitialized)
and removes the now superfluous code in the other two callers.

No code actually tests the scenario in which data != extended_data.
Of the 7984267 calls to get_frame_defaults() during FATE, 2784297
freed the extended_data, but in all these scenarios (which all came
from av_frame_alloc() and av_frame_move_ref()) extended_data was NULL.
