egl-device build option and eglstreams in version 3.23.90 (3.24)

Asked by Igor on 2017-02-20

New version of mutter (3.23.90) enables support for Nvidia EGLStreams. To use this feature mutter must be configured and built with "--enable-egl-device" option, which nables EGLStreams backend.

Currently, however, mutter is being built with egldevice disabled, which makes it impossible to use wayland with nvidia binary drivers.

I've built the package myself with eglstreams backend enabled and was able to run gnome-shell with wayland on nvidia binary drivers. This, however, rendered xorg unuseable session (for some reason). There were also bunch of segfaults reportet in dmesg.

Is eglstreams support planned for 17.04 release?
