Hi again everybody,

Just a little heads-up on the subject : I have actually been able to render
GL applications remotely with the RDP backend.

Here is a video demo (with Weston & EFL apps running in EGL mode) :

It just requires a small patch in Mesa ; just pushed it. If we merge this,
we will be able to do software rendering as a fallback :

(btw : it could also benefit hardware running Tizen without hardware accel)

Opinions and review would be greatly appreciated.
