Intel VAAPI howto with Leia v18 nightly based on Ubuntu 18.04 server
For anyone interested here are kernel packages ready-to-use in Ubuntu. They are targeted for Asus Beebox but it's vanilla 4.3.0 kernel with passthrough patch and few other patches from OpenElec so for sure will work well at leas on any BSW hardware:

http://37.235.60.68/linux-headers-4.3.0-..._amd64.deb
http://37.235.60.68/linux-image-4.3.0-pa..._amd64.deb

List of patches:

linux-003-no_dev_console.patch
linux-011-Thermal-initialize-thermal-zone-device-correctly.patch
linux-012-Thermal-handle-thermal-zone-device-properly-during-s.patch
linux-013-Thermal-do-thermal-zone-update-after-a-cooling-devic.patch
linux-054-nuvoton_revert_d7b290a1056c5564eec8a1b169c6e84ff3.6.114c13.patch
linux-057-Removed-MCE-customer-code-restriction-in-rc6-decode.patch
linux-990.06-hda-Avoid-outputting-HDMI-audio-before-prepare-.patch
linux-999.02-0001-pm-disable-async-suspend-resume-by-default.patch
linux-999-i915-implement-passthrough-colors.patch
linux-999-i915-use-legacy-turbo.patch

To use passthrough patch in Kodi put this into ~kodi/.config/openbox/autostart (please copy, don't try to write it from screen):
Code:
OUTPUT=`xrandr -q | sed '/ connected/!d;s/ .*//;q'`
xrandr -display :0 --output $OUTPUT --set "Broadcast RGB" "Full"
xrandr -display :0 --output $OUTPUT --set "Broadcast RGB" "Video 16:235 pass-through"
xrandr -display :0 --output $OUTPUT --off ; xrandr -display :0 --output $OUTPUT --auto
/usr/bin/kodi --standalone
Big thanks goes to d0dger for providing space on web-server!
