  Description     : lightweight hardware composer library for libdrm

Dependency for gamescope. Not sure where to maintain, will probably talk to the
X Strike Force team.

libliftoff eases the use of KMS planes from userspace without standing in your
way. Users create "virtual planes" called layers, set KMS properties on them,
and libliftoff will pick planes for these layers if possible.
