I'm using Intel i965 driver for Intel(R) Bay Trail and VAAPI on my Liva X 
system and had a similar tearing problem. I fixed it by adding a stanza to 
xorg.conf (actually to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf on this Gentoo 

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
    Driver      "intel"
    Option      "TearFree"    "true"

I wrote about that on the Gentoo forums at 
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1006786-start-25.html if you are 
interested in any further background. Not sure whether that will resolve 
your issue but it could be worth considering.
