I read that the ultimate goal for Lima is to work and plug into Gallium. I'm excited to see the code published, but out of plain curiosity, why wasn't the MALI driver written with Mesa/Gallium in mind at the start? Here is the first r600g commit:


By no means am I complaining or anything, just wondering. Every driver in Mesa right now has started off within Mesa, and I'm just curious as to why this is different. Highly appreciate the work of libv! Thank you!
