Here is the "alternate approach" implemented. I left the vaapi*.c parts 
since those were mechanical changes only. Is this cleaner for you? Changes 
to MPlayer are now zero effort.

As a reminder, I think this "alternate approach" is Reimar's if I got it 
right. That is:
- lavc: allocate private HW accel data
- user: ::get_buffer() that does mpi->planes[3] => AVFrame::hwaccel_data

- Fewer user app changes
- Keep AVFrame::data[0-2] for the original YV12 pixels, if needed

- More "expressive" in the HWAccel codec implementation part.

Though ,this point is solved by partial public vaapi_render_state struct 
members copies, once at ::start_frame(), no more expensive than doing 
((struct vaapi_render_state *)AVFrame->hwaccel_data)->whatever_needed_there
