It is an EGL driver that does EGL-over-GLX.  A call to eglMakeCurrent
is translated to glXMakeCurrent, for example.  It is almost always
enabled (as libGL is almost always built).

It means both x11 and drm platforms are supported and the native
platform, the first one listed, is x11: EGLNativeDisplayType is
assumed to be Display *.  You may change the native platform at
runtime by setting EGL_PLATFORM or at compile time by specifying

Screen surface is a surface from which a GPU can be programmed to scan
out.  It is defined by a Mesa extension.  The others are the same as those
in GLX.
