This change will only affect AMD, as the intel non-free drivers do not
depend on the changes. It is also unclear how this would affect nvidia.
There is barely any hardware video acceleration support for nouveau
anyway, for which you would install the proprietary driver. Further, as
NVIDIA does not expose a vaapi interface, you need to install third
party packages to get it to work with Firefox. So AFAICT this will
primarily (if not only) affect AMD users.
