GL_NV_vdpau_interop partially available

It seems like the GL_NV_vdpau_interop extension is only partially supported on this hardware. The vdpau -> GL part works, but not the other way around. However, since it's only partially supported, the extension is not enabled. But the vdpau -> GL part is very useful for hardware accelerated video, as is done in Kodi.
When I watch a video in Kodi, the h/w acceleration doesn't work. When I enable this extension by using the environment variable MESA_EXTENSION_OVERRIDE, I can watch the video in Kodi using h/w acceleration through VDPAU.
I've discussed this on the Kodi forum and it was suggested that it would be a good idea to report this as a bug. The thread can be found here: http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=231416&page=3
