correct ARCH restriction for libva-intel-driver
The recent test run on aarch64 resulted in seemingly random application of either ONLY_FOR_ARCHS or BROKEN_aarch64.
In the case of the VAAPI driver for Intel GPUs which only exist in x86 systems, ONLY_FOR_ARCHS= amd64 i386 is clearly the correct choice.
In the case of this port I agree, since this driver is really specific to i386/amd64 hardware.
I'm going to commit this shortly but let me coordinate with the other committers about this.
Mark have you any objection to marking the libva ports as ONLY_FOR_ARCHs? i don't think they will ever work on anything except i386 and amd64 anyway.
To be clear, I'm only proposing marking the intel driver as only for x86, not all libva ports as there is libva-vdpau-driver and vdpau could work on other archs.

You are right, I misrepresented my intentions. I agree with this.

Mark port as ONLY_FOR_ARCHS=amd64 i386, as it supports hardware
specific to those architectures.

libva itself does build on armv6 and sparc64. Now, as to whether it's useful there, I have no idea ... so someone who understands what it is should set ONLY_FOR as appropriate. Thanks.
