Hey Jacob,
sorry for not spotting this the first time, but I have an additional comment.
Please see below.

I don't feel wsi_x11_connection_create should fail if there's no amd_reply or
nv_reply. That should just lead to unconditionally warning, in case there's no
DRI3 support.

With that fixed, this patch is
