Add OpenGL acceleration

Registered by Michael Hope on 2010-10-12

Linaro is putting significant work into good support for SoC graphic chipsets including good 3G acceleration. Having OpenGL acceleration in QEMU, perhaps as a pass-through to the host OpenGL, would let us better demo Linaro improvements.

Whiteboard

This blueprint is probably going to be superseded by work done by Riku. In any case it's not yet certain whether we'll do work in 11.11 for it as part of the toolchain group.

Effort: 2-4M
