What about software rendering? Is something like llvmpipe, or a port of the
existing llvmpipe, in the works for Vulkan?
No, nothing concrete has been mentioned in this area at all.
sw rendering won't benefit from vulkan very much, in fact it would be worse
than GL in some cases, as Vulkan really works on the building up long
command buffers and executing them, rather than direct execution in a context
that GL does.
