To sum up, you basically associate an _EGLDevice with each _EGLDisplay
where the _EGLDevice only contains the meta information where to
find the device and the _EGLDisplay later contains open file descriptors
to work with ...
Nevertheless, running the tests and proof of concept programs that I used
back in the day brought up some questions and one crash.
At first the Crash: The attached eglcontext-pbuffer.c which goes the pbuffer approach
instead of going surfaceless just dumps core in pbuffer creation using
the patch series. I believe that it is legal what the program does, but may
be you want to double check that too.
Then if I use the patch series on an account that has no DISPLAY set and no
'display server' running, eglInitialize fails in device_probe_device due to at first
opening the '.../card0' device and bailing out when this does not work.
Means the current patch series goes via opening the primary node which
shall not be accessible by everyone and from that derives the rendernode
device which is finally used for _EGLDisplay initialization.
Can we alternatively go directly to the rendernode in some way?
For patch #7, can you explain why dri already provides the right format?
It's probably correct, but I am missing some bits of that context creation
big picture to give a review.
And finally, in patch #2 you mention that you want to avoid larger patches
and the announced extensions are not yet working as expected.
May be you can announce the extensions in a separate patch that follows
all the implementation patches? That probably helps people that want to
bisect something using piglit.
thanks for approaching this topic!
