Comment (by eero-t):

 There's been a clear improvement to AVC -> MPEG2 performance this last
 week, between...

 These versions:
 * ffmpeg  (dd019473) 2019-10-15 avformat/latmenc: abort if no extradata is
 * media-driver (e370de92) 2019-10-15 [VP] Add HDR flag support in vphal

 And these:
 * ffmpeg (e831f601) 2019-10-16 fate/source: add libavfilter/af_arnndn.c
 * media-driver (6e7275cf) 2019-10-16 encode_mpeg2: use 16kb as the buf
 unit for mpeg2 vbvBuf

 Especially in multi-process VA-API encoding, where it's now about same
 perf as MSDK and FFmpeg QSV.

 (Single process encoding is still behind a bit, I guess that's mostly due
 threading differences between QSV & VA-API backends and resulting kernel
 power management handling.)
