I don't know when the Wayland driver will be available. Was told "it's a big job," or something to that effect. So it might still be some time before it's ready.
I suspect this will be supported in the Wayland driver -- which I've been told is in the works.
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.
