Update to libva-2.2.0 and intel driver
Tags for X drivers. This required spinning up a VM in my Proxmox instance as well as testing the Wacom/Synaptic drivers on a separate sytem.

40 The <application>libva</application> package contains a library which
41 provides access to hardware accelerated video processing, using hardware
42 to accelerate video processing in order to offload the central
43 processing unit (CPU) to decode and encode compressed digital video. The VA
44 API video decode/encode interface is platform and window system
45 independent targeted at Direct Rendering Infrastructure (DRI) in the X
46 Window System however it can potentially also be used with direct
47 framebuffer and graphics sub-systems for video output. Accelerated
48 processing includes support for video decoding, video encoding,
49 subpicture blending, and rendering.
