DRI3 Async Display Flipping For Linux, VBlank Syncing
With DRI3, which parts of X.org can be thrown out?
Is DRI(1) thrown out yet?
Any other part that can be thrown out?
I hope they put X.org on a diet, and really cut it down and trim it down and make it light and make it maintainable. But its hard with so much legacy and backwards compatibility.
That's what's been happening for a long time now, and it's also one of the reason Wayland is being written in the first place.
Many of the former "core" features of X have moved out either into the Kernel, separate libraries and specialized clients, leaving X(org)
as a very superfluous and largely inefficient IPC mechanism.
