[Buildroot] [PATCH 0/4] New GFX drivers (branch yem/gfx)

Hello All!

This series adds support for two new graphics drivers:
  - Intel's i915-based GPUs, using mesa3d
  - NVidia's GPUs, using a new package, nvidia-driver

It also introduces the OpenGL Registry, to provide GL headers for
those OpenGL/EGL/GLES implementations that do not provide their own
headers (like NVidia's binary blob.)

The series was tested using XBMC as a test-bed:
  - i915: build and runtime tested; i915 lacks proper video decoding
    capabilites, so it is a bit slow when playing h264 videos; otherwise
    the GUI runs smoothly;
  - NVidia: build tested only, runtime tests in progress (stupid HTPC
    refuses to boot off USB when an internal HDD is present)...

Regards,
Yann E. MORIN.
