GLX is basically dead. All the new GL features are only exposed through EGL. Blacklisting EGL on a whole vendor is not an option IMO. What is your sunset strategy here? Waiting for Vulkan does not sound very reasonable.

Then it probably breaks Tegra very badly, since GLX is probably not supported or only partially supported there.

Finally, by that same logic, we should blacklist the Mesa VDP and VA drivers entirely, as well as the VA backend to VDPAU. Why are you targeting only NVIDIA EGL? This seems very inconsistent and poorly planned.
