Not sure if anyone will look into this, but I run into bug where xvmc state tracker/nouveau failed for me in multiple ways, depending on exact kernel/mesa combination.
With kernel 4.2.0 new mesa (Mesa 17.1.0-devel git-12dcad1b) compiled agains recent libdrm (d4b8344363b4e0f0e831e5722b6df5cc0bb08df8 Author: Chad Versace firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Fri Jan 27 12:18:00 2017 -0800 Bump version for 2.4.75 release)
produces pink window.
With more mdoern kernel (4.10-rc5). whole device creation failed.
