VADriverVTableEGL is deprecated in libva, we has a more efficient way to use vaapi and egl.
You can refer to the examples in libyami-utils (https://github.com/01org/libyami-utils.git) for
how to use vaapi and egl.

configure for connector, encoder, planes aren't a part of va-api driver. You should check libdrm and drm/i915.
You can refer to the test case of modetest in libdrm (git.freedesktop.org/git/mesa/drm)
