You're looking at totally the wrong stuff. These files are totally 
unrelated to the existing 3D support.

Check the contents of src/VBox/HostServices/SharedOpenGL for a lot of 
the code (there are bits and pieces elsewhere).

Note that I'm not knowing any details how the whole thing works, so 
asking me personally won't get you much further.
