I'm currently working under extension of QSV support in ffmpeg.
Could please anybody say, are there any serious reasons to use external SPS
parser into the qsv_process_data() of libavcodec/qsvdec_h264.c instead
nice MFXVideoDECODE_DecodeHeader() function? Looks like it is just
rudiment of initial implementation but may be it is really important by some reason?

There was a specific reason this was done this way.
You should definitely inquire with the original author of this code
for the reason of not using the header parser, IIRC it was broken in
