Comment (by kosso):

 4.7.1 immediately broke .m4a audio file uploads.

 `wp-includes/functions.php` incorrectly assigns it as `audio/mpeg'

 According to rfc4337 it should be set to `audio\mp4`

 Changing it to this fixed m4a uploads for me.

 - Note: Many places have different ideas about what the correct MIME type
 for 'Apple MPEG-4 audio' should be. Observed are :

 audio/mp4a-latm [Low-overhead MPEG-4 Audio
    Transport Multiplex]
