[Wayland] Gl Wayland tracking bug

As Wayland is run or recent EGL stack / Gtk versions and compositors we should enable GL compositor by default at least for some subset of hardware - Intel and AMD gfx cards and gnome-shell compositor.

Gnome-shell itself uses EGL backend (composites to EGL textures) so GL is guaranteed to work there. It may also help with transition to WebRenderer.

KDE/Sway may be added later after some tests.

That's not point to enable GL compositor, better to go directly for WebRedner which works much better and does not suffer from Bug 1587788. Let's use this bug to track various Wayland/GL related bugs instead.
