I don't know how the main copy of libffi in the CPython tree is updated, and if it is a straight copy of the upstream release. Given the mercurial log I'd guess that Modules/_ctypes/libffi is libffi 3.0.11 with a small patch in Modules/_ctypes/libffi.diff.

As Arfrever notes libffi_osx is used on OSX only, and that version is a fork of libffi shared with PyObjC (that is, I try to update the copy in the CPython tree whenever I have to update the copy for PyObjC). 

I agree that the issue with libffi should be fixed upstream first,  otherwise it would get harder and harder to import new upstream versions.
