Hello, we tried in Ubuntu to use the new shiny vboxvideo mainline kernel driver

with the new shiny CONFIG_DRM_VBOXVIDEO config key, and we had to quickly disable
it to use the old working kernel module.

Reason: it breaks with wayland.



Right now it will be kept disabled until somebody sorts this out, but the question
for now is:

did anybody check/test or had to patch wayland to make it work, or
has been only tested with X11 server?
