> The public functions av_alloc_vdpaucontext() and
> av_vdpau_alloc_context() are allocating AVVDPAUContext
> structure that is supposed to be placed in avctx->hwaccel_context.
> However the rest of libavcodec/vdpau.c uses avctx->hwaccel_context
> as struct VDPAUHWContext, that is bigger and does contain
> AVVDPAUContext as first member.
> The usage includes write to the new variables in the bigger stuct,
> without checking for block size.
> Fix by always allocating the bigger structure.

Patch applied and backported.

Thank you, Carl Eugen
