It came in in 3.2.

>> To go further with the qt support, I have added staging headers and libs, see patch below. I can now build qt5 with the gui module (which needs the eglfs support). However, when preparing an out of tree qt-project with buildroots qmake, the subsequent make step says it's got nothing to do. Looking into it, the SOURCES from the .pro file did not get picked up, but I have no idea why. Maybe this is another post though.

I'm a little on hold until I get further with the qmake issue, but I'm 
thinking about further integrating the target install step. How can we 
work together on this? I mean, in case you (or I) want to incorporate 
Arnouts comments and then go further?
