Intel's open-source ANV Vulkan driver now supports the VK_EXT_debug_report extension.

The Debug Report extension paired with Vulkan's validation layers allow for detailed feedback about a game/application's usage of this graphics API. The debug report extension can signal about undefined results, unexpected use, non-optimal uses of Vulkan, diagnostic information, and other informational messages. More details on EXT_debug_report can be found via the documentation.

Landing in Mesa Git for Mesa 17.3 is the VK_EXT_debug_report implementation that has previously been floating around the mailing list for a while.
