I wanted to emphasize that no longer a vanilla/mainlain kernel is needed
as the official raspberry provided one gained the DRM VC4 support...

Not exactly supported, but needed for the rpi4 case...

Because no one of the selecting BR2_PACKAGE_MESA3D_GALLIUM_KMSRO drivers

For the RPi3 the vc4 (and kmsro) is sufficient, for the RPi4 all three
(v3d, vc4, kmsro) are needed...
Did not test if mesa3d-v3d compiles without libdrm vc4 (but checked it links
the same way against libdrm as mesa3d-vc4)...

Will try to come up with an better commit log...
