Hi Keith,

A couple of questions/suggestions.

Is the VK_KEITHP_kms_display spec available somewhere?

Since there are multiple companies [participating in Mesa] with
Khronos membership, could we make this an EXT extension? Once
everything else is settled in, of course.

I think it makes sense to spit the VK_KHR_display +
VK_EXT_direct_mode_display bits from the patch. AFAICT they're used by
2/3 and 3/3 which are already well defined extensions.
This way we could land them, while the new extension [and kernel bits]
are being refined.
