This is the Mesa driver for Broadcom VC4. It is notably used in the Raspberry Pi hardware, and the driver is included as an option as of the 2016-02-09 Rasbpian release.

Enabling the driver (raspbian)

Enabling the driver is controlled using raspi-config. Select Advanced Options option and then GL Driver.

Raspbian only supports vc4 on the Raspberry PI 2 and later. The driver supports Raspberry Pi 1, but raspi-config refuses to do it.

Enabling the driver (other distributions)

There should be nothing specific to do to enable the driver on current Debian or Fedora.
