- Several AMDGPU updates/fixes, including AMDGPU_VA_RANGE_HIGH support for returning high virtual addresses.

- Minor improvements to the Meson build system support.

- Various Android fixes/improvements around GrAlloc.

- The Freedreno code now adds an interface to get buffer addresses, which is needed for the OpenCL/Clover support for Freedreno.
