Ah! Sorry. I didn't catch or understand the details.
Did you mean the attempts to use drm_hwcomposer
My understanding so far is most x86 GPUs won't work
except some very limited models.
It's due to kernel driver issues which may never be solved.
So we can't drop the flink name support.
Please correct me if I am wrong.
