No, this is not possible, creating the surfaces requires va_context which
is not available yet at the point ff_alloc_vaapi_render_state() is called.
And, if they are lazily allocated afterwards, we'd need a new hook to
clean the pool up or let it be free'd in the ff_free_vaapi_render_state()
but this way to alloc/free surfaces is not very efficient.
