I might have made mistakes, but when mapping the gbm_bo on that side (using gbm_bo_import and then gbm_map_bo), it appears that the buffer is empty (maybe it cannot be transferred correctly?).

I just rebuilt Xorg and started it with a minimal modesetting conf:

- with AccelMethod "none", I get a working/visible unaccelerated desktop,
  glxinfo showing softpipe
- with AccelMethod "glamor", I get an invisible desktop (possibly same problem as
  in Xwayland). DRI3 is enabled which I confirmed by stepping with gdb
  through glamor_egl_screen_init. glxinfo shows "Vivante GC3000 rev
  5450" and "Max compat profile version: 2.1.", glxgears has a high
  framerate. But I cannot see any of this output.
