mesa 22.2.x
has been merged to mesa trunk and disables building of vc1dec, h264 enc/dec and h265 enc/dec codecs by default.

The first stable mesa version with this change will be mesa 22.2.x which is expected to be released in Q3 2022 .

Unless the new opion video-codecs is used to re-enable those codecs mesa 22.2.x and later will have almost no HW accelartion .

I created to discuss this change and was asked to file a feature request to ensure archlinux developers would be made aware of it.

This task depends upon
