With the latest Mesa patch series by Chih-Wei Huang of Android-x86, the AMD RadeonSI Gallium3D driver is to be enabled.

Chih-Wei Huang sent in a fresh patch series today of more Android patches for Mesa. There's a few optimizations, compatibility improvements, and perhaps most interesting is that the RadeonSI Gallium3D driver will now be built for Android to use AMD Radeon HD 7000 series GPUs and newer with Android.

More details on that new Mesa Android patch series can be found via this Mesa-dev list thread.
