The gallium driver is untested, and unusable on some AMD cards, which led to gst-vaapi being
disabled altogether in the GNOME runtime.

Subject: [PATCH] pluginutil: Remove Mesa from drivers white list
The Mesa Gallium driver is poorly tested currently, leading to bad user
experience for AMD users. The driver can be added back to the white list at
runtime using the GST_VAAPI_ALL_DRIVERS environment variable.
