RFP: mesa for bullseye-backports

To whom it may concern,

I think it would be a good idea to bring a newer version of mesa to Debian Bullseye by bringing it to bullseye-backports. Here are some reasons why:

1. It reduces friction when running Debian Stable on newer hardware: bullseye-backports already has linux-image-amd64 and nvidia-driver; adding a newer mesa will just make using newer hardware that much more easier while still having a nice stable base. 2. It's for the gamers: because steam still calls the system installed version of mesa, having the option to install a newer version tends to make games run better/fewer issues. 3. It has been done in the past: mesa has been in stretch-backports and buster-backports, so maybe a maintainer with experience can have a look at it when they get the chance.

Anyways, thanks for taking the time to read this and hope it one day gets implemented.
Have a great day
Alex Relis
