Graphics stack updates for Raspberry Pi devices

This talk will show the efforts done in the Open-Source graphics stack for supporting Raspberry Pi devices. Although the talk will focus on the recently launched new Raspberry Pi 5, we will show the improvements done for previous generations of the Raspberry Pi hardware.

Raspberry Pi 5 has available FLOSS GPU drivers on product launch, exposing OpenGL-ES 3.1 and Vulkan 1.2. We'll go through the changes needed to enable desktop OpenGL 3.1 on RPi4/5.

We will also review the changes done to the kernel driver to expose the RPi5 capabilities and the new GPU stats support for RPi4/5.

Finally, we will show the work done to use Wayfire as the default Wayland compositor on the Raspberry Pi OS.
