No, you just declare a regular struct pipe_surface and set it up by 
settings its fields. This is called the template. The template is then 
used for the surface creation call to describe the desired properties of 
the surface object. It can be a bit confusing because the same type is 
used for surfaces and surface templates, I guess.

Refer to si_blit.c:si_resource_copy_region to see how it's done.
