We never used this, and all this does is make egl libraries without it fail to load.
Should we support it though? Not opposed to removing it for now but I would like to understand whether this was dropped in 4.0 or we just don't support it right.

The surfaceflinger code talks about how this is slow so we probably don't want support for it. https://github.com/cgjones/android-frameworks-base/blob/gingerbread-b2g/services/surfaceflinger/DisplayHardware/DisplayHardware.cpp#L241 Apparently using setUpdateRectangle looks the preferred solution, but I don't know how it improves things.
Great. Land it! :)
