It appears that the patch may introduce a bug in the 64-bit build of libEGL,
but I'm not certain. Here's my reasoning.
1. Suppose that
- This patch is applied.
- The system has no X headers installed.
- Some Wayland application has a source file, broken.c, that
#includes <wayland-egl.h> then <EGL/egl.h>.
2. In eglapi.c, which defines eglCreateWindowSurface, EGLNativeWindowType
will be defined as khronos_uint32_t.
3. In broken.c, wayland-egl.h first defines WL_EGL_PLATFORM. Then
EGLNativeWindowType will be defined as wl_egl_window*, a 64-bit type.
Without the patch, eglapi.c safely typedefs EGLNativeWindowType to XID, which matches
the system's pointer size.
