I played with this a bit. I was able to compile libdrm and mesa for
the vmwgfx DRM driver and was able to get a simple glxgears running on
it. That was with the gallium EGL driver. I wasn't able to get Wayland
compiled for the same configuration and gave up on it. I may try later
when things stop churning in mesa for Wayland.
