Thanks @samcv.
I could provide a PKGBUILD which works for intel, but probably not for other graphics.
Edit: Well, i have no idea how to submit packages. Is it even possible if i am not the maintainer?
Edit2: If you guys want to compile chromium you can check out my github for now until we have updated the AUR package:

I have added OneObsession as a co-maintainer. I have not spoken to him about this, but if he is up to the task of doing this, I will also work something out for the pacman repository as well.

other thing:
this page have patchs for chromium, it is the used lines for having vaapi?

some news about the link I put before? it is a work around for the problem with the gpu sandbox.. I think is very important with amd gpu's for function with chromium vaapi because the sandbox could be the cause of vaapi failing to be load in gpu proccess
PD: vdpau has an special backend in aur, you can try it if you want:
it probably help you for having chromium with vaapi functioning well
