[Mesa-dev] [PATCH] egl/dri2: disambiguate driver name

So far the Mesa-internal EGL driver "dri2" returned "DRI2" as its driver
name. This causes confusion, because there is a kernel interface by the
same name where a version 3 is available.

This change attempts to make it clearer that the "dri2" name of the Mesa
EGL driver has nothing to do with that kernel interface and is rather a
Mesa internal versioning of an interface.

See eg. the thread beginning at
for an example.
