Precisely my line of thinking as well. Both egl and glx drop the
reference to the objects on !newCtx.

WinSysDrawBuffer/WinSysReadBuffer is in _mesa_free_context_data which
happens on ctx teardown. Which sounds incomplete -  so I'm a bit
curious why/how that i965 works fine.

Indeed. Skimming through the android-ia log - can borrow
ENABLE_FLINK_SUPPORT and let drm/gbm gralloc have a static inline
helpers gralloc_drm_get_gem_handle/gralloc_drm_get_prime_fd.
Thus everyone can polish their gralloc (if interested?) while still
having something that works across the board. With similar direction

Although admittedly i965 could/should use gbm_gralloc ;-)
