Intel has added VP9 encoding support to the Video Acceleration API (VA-API).

VA-API has already supported VP9 for accelerated video decoding, but now there's VP9 encode support added to its implementation.

Following that addition to libva, developers also added VP9 encoding to the libva-intel-driver.
