Apple: we'll soon be sending patches to projects for Apple Silicon
Apple: fuck that, we'll submit everything to HandBrake, upstream can get fucked
Yes, that's a huge x265 patch. And a few misc dav1d and ffmpeg patches. That we haven't heard a thing about. That are only available in HandBrake.

Apparently those patches have cleared Apple Legal first, rather than any upstream, and they still might send the patches upstream.
But why are they sending these patches to handbrake at all? Because handbrake patches all of its upstream already anyway, so might as well shove everything we do there as well?
