Actually I wanted to have a look at that at a certain point, but... time... 
Apparently the open source driver [1] is simply a message passing shim that 
talks to the RTOS that runs on the broadcom gpu.  

So in my naive view if I could just link these things in with the mirage kernel 
and access the exposed GLES api using tgls [2] that could actually do it.  

Btw, what's the status of mirage on the rPI ?  


P.S. At a certain point I looked at trying to do that using Goswin [1] 
exo-kernel. But I stopped trying to get a working arm cross compiler. Would be 
nice to be able to bundle cross-compilers in opam switches.
