Add a new renderer API

Simon Ser requested to merge emersion/wlroots:renderer-api into master


  • Extensibility: we need to be able to add new params to the calls to render a texture/rect. For instance we'll need to add fences to the render texture operation for explicit sync purposes.
  • No implicit state: no more bind_buffer, begin, end.
  • No matrices: these hurt Pixman and we don't need them.
  • Clip regions for optimized damage repainting.

Closes: #3188 (closed)

It was about time we broke that API.
