Linux wayland support
Displaylink does not seem to work with wayland yet, which is starting to be the standard, replacing Xorg, on linux soon:
Would be great if you could also support wayland!
To work with Wayland, EVDI lacks GBM. For anyone that would be willing to have a go and develop a GBM backend, here’s how it was already implemented for Chrome OS in their minigbm: https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromiumos/platform/minigbm/+/master/evdi.c

Mir is dead and Ubuntu is moving to Gnome and Wayland. Wayland support will be necessary sooner rather than later.
Will you be supporting Ubuntu 17.04 ?

Wayland is not just a thing now, it's pretty much the default path of the majority of distributions for all recent laptops.
You should port DisplayLink to Wayland or this technology will become irrelevant.

yeah. I'm using gnome on wayland and it did not recognize my third display. Please add support driver for wayland.
